I was off for my usual lunch walk through the Ansley neighborhood, when I noticed a family of mushrooms in the middle of someone's lawn. Apparently, they popped up there overnight. I was ready to take a picture, but the grass was wet from the recent rain. "I'll take the picture on my way back," I reasoned with myself, "the grass will dry up by the time". I enjoyed the view for a short while and kept strolling. A few minutes later something made me to turn back. My knees got wet and dirty, but I took a few shots.
After a walk, going back to the office, I passed the familiar lawn. It was immaculately mowed. The happy family was gone.
I would like you to add a few lines to your New Year resolutions list. You can fit them in between the usual "to lose a few pounds" and "to clean the basement (storage, garage...you fill in)" items:
-do not procrastinate,
-recognize and take my chances, when life presents them to me,
-listen to my inner voice.
Happy New Year everyone.
