I was en route to work at around 7:30 in the morning. I was running about 5 minutes late. I glanced to my left and saw some incredible fog.
The following conversation happened in my mind: -"Oh my _______ goodness this is incredible." -"It's nice. It's nice. But we need to go to school."
-"No it's more than nice, damn it! Pull the vehicle over."
-"I don't think I should."
-"Are you sure?"
-"Absolutely! ...pretty sure."
-"Okay I'll do it!" I'm very glad I did. I was able to see the fluctuating fog flow through the trees. As the fog relocated, I saw new objects emerging.
These objects were birds (Sand Hill Cranes) and they were out looking for an early morning meal.
By the time the cranes had made their presence known, the sun had begun doing the same. The Sand Hill Cranes and I both looked to the East to watch the new day begin.
Then I remembered I needed to go and reluctantly left. I will treasure the time I had to enjoy this moment though.
