Elusive lesson

I spent most of the day on the road. The college has a campus at the edge of Alabama not far from the Mississippi state line.

The session had been planned for months, but only one person signed up. As it turns out, that person didn't show up so I had a 200-mile tour. It was a beautiful day, with blue skies, green pastures, and lazy cattle grazing in the shade.

Was it the best use of my time? It's hard to say. I'm sure there's a lesson there somewhere, but sometimes the lessons are elusive.

I'll leave you with another picture of the courtyard outside my office window.


  1. An office with a window. I'm jealous. Well if I was still working I'd be jealous.

  2. Yeah who knows what would have happened on the short trip you would have taken. Besides sometimes the ride is good for the soul. (Better than being upset, that is for sure). Of course you might even find the lesson. ;-).

  3. Sometimes we are not in control of what might be the best use of our time.

  4. You do have a pretty view from your window. Nice to give the eyes a rest and look out at the outdoors. I worked for years on computers ever day and was always thankful for a window to look out. I'd think your lesson was to go with the flow and be flexible. We just have to be thankful for every moment.

  5. Nice view. My current office doesn't have a window at all.

  6. I am impressed how you found joy after the road trip, and envious that you have such a view out your window.

  7. I do a lot of driving. 200 miles is a long trip without some campanionship.

  8. I hate when someone does not show-not being very considerate. At least it gave you time to ponder and walk and enjoy the day

  9. First I would be disappointed and would want to know what went wrong... But maybe I'd be happy that I had the rest of the day to myself. I just hope someone is paying for your gas.
    At least you got the chance to be alone with your truck. hehe.
