I decided on Monday morning to skip the self-pity of last week and go straight to the contemplation of nature. I stopped and snapped this photo of the water tank, rendered suddenly beautiful with the recent eruption of color from the flowers blooming above the sitting water and the dark, angry sky that threatened rain. I couldn't help myself and quickly pedaled off the bike lane before the light changed and I missed my chance. A few cars passed me as I composed my shot. Did the drivers notice a woman on a bike on the side of the road taking pictures? Did they wish they had the time to waste taking pretty pictures or did they realize that some things are worth being late for? Especially the little things.
