Beautiful Commute | March 2006 | Copyright 2006
Have you ever had a week that has left you feeling unsure of yourself and everything that you are, and yet simultaneously happy and grateful for what you have? Or am I just freaking out?
I am uncertain. Uncertain about learning a new job in a new department while I continue to do my old job in my old department. Uncertain about the new people that I am working with, and unsure if I am up to the task of absorbing all of this new information.
I am happy. Happy that I got an old camera to work and happy about the inspiration that has come from this new medium. Happy to be married to my husband, and happy to be healthy.
I am annoyed. Annoyed that the real estate market in the Bay Area is still so freaking inflated.
I am grateful. Grateful for the apartment that I live in. Grateful that I have food on my table every day. Grateful that, as a woman, I have the freedom to swim or ski or just go for a walk.
I am not feeling centered. This week's photograph serves as a reminder to myself that I will get stuck in traffic. And that as long as I am stuck, I should look out the window and enjoy the life that continues to go on around me.
