a gentle reminder to cherish every moment..

today, I was out on my morning run...

my mind was wandering around, thinking.. worrying.
I came down this super calm street, still consumed with thoughts..

trying to turn them off and be in the present moment.

a parallel parked car from across the street, burned out and skreetched across the street in reverse..
from a dead stop.. to instantly pedal to the floor.
it came right at me in reverse, destroyed a tree.. smashing the tree onto the sidewalk about a foot behind me.

I could feel the branches from the tree as it came down, it was close.
the car was stuck kind of upright on the stump part of the tree.

it looked like something out of a movie..
it felt like something out of a movie

I kept running and got out of there.. it shocked the hell out of me.
all my thoughts were gone, no more worries.

I feel really thankful to have avoided that one.
