Round and Around…

A metallic blue SUV turns the corner, the driver’s mind turns as well.Life 012

A pinkish red streaks across the sky as first glance of the morning sun appears. She is unable to notice, the day ahead swirling in her head.

Too much to do…too much to do…too much to do…

She nears her destination.

The sun disappears behind the trees and houses of the subdivision, behind the rising wall that leads to the highway.

The street light turns yellow. She resists temptation to push her heeled foot into the gas pedal.

The turquoise ring on her right ring finger keeps time to a  Journey classic, while her mind tells her

Too much to do…too much to do…too much to do…

The light turns “go!” green.

She travels the last leg to the end place, past a row of homes, assisted living and condos.

Into the roundabout she goes, first to the right, then circle left. The SUV veers toward its destination while her mind stays in the roundabout.

Circling. Round and around.

Too much to do…too much to do…too much to do…

Hey Mind! Do you mind? I’m over here.

She points at the parking lot where she has landed.

Her mind catches up.

The office keys are in hand. She inserts the gold key into the lock and turns the key to the right.

Her mind follows, still chortling

Too much to do…too much to do…too much to do…

It’s going to be a long day if her mind doesn’t shut up.

  3. When I find myself in that moment, I’ve always left some key piece of something at home. Or I forgot to put something on. Or take something off.

    Love this post! My favourite line is ‘The turquoise ring on her right ring finger keeps time to a Journey classic, while her mind tells her…’ This post rocks! It makes me want to roll along with the adventure ;-D
