Y’know, one of those moments that interrupts your typical cycle of thoughts - thoughts centered around the numerous things you need to remember, the questioning if someone is going to call or is thinking about you, or really any multitude of thoughts that keep us from really being present. Those moments that stick around… for a while... always hanging out in the background of your mind waiting for the right time to step in again.
My moment was simple really. It was blistery cold morning, as we had an unusually frigid winter, and I was headed in to the grocery store to grab some goods for a food day at work. As I pulled in to the grocery store lot, there was the quick shuffle of people in and out as they tried to shelter themselves from a wind-chill that I remember made me feel like my cheeks could chap.
