the drive home today

after yesterday's adventure, i went to work this morning with a renewed sense of well being. I felt alive again. i felt good. getting to work i actually walked in with a smile on my nearly sun burnt face. My day at work turned out to be like any other in corp. america. high stress, and fast paced. more responsibility tossed onto an already over flowing plate, yet i still felt good. i could take what ever they had to throw at me. every time i sat down at my computer, i found myself day dreaming about my next outing. looking forward to some time on the water alone again.

nine hours later, and some what burnt out from the days work load i got into my truck for the 45 minute drive home to my family. i didnt realize but my mind had already started putting my memories from the day before in the back corners behind all the other faded memories. i was thinking about what my kids had done for the day, how was school, is my wife feeling ok, i wonder what we'll do for dinner.

i turned my truck onto the onramp of I95 north and began to accelerate, easing in front of an eighteen wheeler as he hauled Americas needs from one location to another and my mind was contemplating all the joys of a father. did i pay all the bills already? i sure hope my stocks dont fall, my kids need the college money. oh my god. my kids will be growing up soon. why do things happen so fast? not one thought passed through my mind about the beauty i had witnessed the day prior.

i was less than 5 miles into my trip home when i saw something that slowed my racing mind again. in broad daylight, on the side of 95 at 1820hrs there stood a doe, and a yearling feeding in the tall grass not yet cut by the mowers i had passed while entering the main artery of florida. i quickly down shifted and pulled my truck to the side of the road and got out. just to watch. i watched those to deer as they ate. they never flinched as life passed them by in a whirl wind. cars, trucks, and vehicles that defy description, some at 85mph or better. the deer never moved except to pluck at the earths bounty. it was then i felt it creep back into my head. it's time to slow down.

i got back into my truck, turned the radio off, and hurled my self northward. i have a family to feed. the rest of my drive was peaceful. i didnt notice the folks i was passing, or the ones passing me by. like worker bees, everybody has a job to do, and they are in a hurry to do it. i find myself being a worker bee.

although i want to give my family all that they deserve, i will not stray from my lifes ambitions, but i will try to be more like those deer. maybe like the gators i watched yesterday morning in the rising sun. or the young dolphin who joined me in part of my trek through haulover. i will take the time to smell the water, and taste the air. i cant get yesterday out of my mind. i cant get those deer out of my mind. i find happiness in their beauty. i find happiness knowing i will be on the water again soon. a lot can be learned from the life just outside your window. you sometimes have to slow down to see it. i will approach the new day a little slower tomorrow.

I drive under 7mi home, but I get to see cows,horses,donkeys,turkeys,eagles.

When I turn down the rd that leads to my house, I sorta leave that rat race behind.for a little while longer anyway
