a minor incident...

(tears are words the heart can't express)
found this the other day in my work book

A lady nearly ran over me on the pedestrian crossing the other day... the look of horror on her face at what had nearly done made me chuckle. I smiled at her and waved her on, she smiled weakly back (still slightly traumatised) and went on her way.

It got me thinking about peoples lives and how a tiny little incident like that, if she was a split second later, could change both our lives forever. Words we say, thoughts we have and things we do could take our lives on a completely different tack within seconds. It reminds me of the pick a path books I used to read where you can decide the outcome of the book by choosing between two paths. Or that movie "Sliding doors"... anyway I am thinking of some new works with this idea in mind.

Well will be starting the move tomorrow... I am excited and scared and worried and anxious and ok...

I have got a lot of art work to do once I settle in, I have two galleries wanting more work and the Christmas sales coming up at the end of November and an art market at Ormerlie lodge 29th November. Feels good to be busy and have things to get on with.

I am sure that it helped to ease things that you smiled at her. My husband was on his way to work one morning and a guy who saw him coming waited and when he saw him upon him he walked out in front of him . My husband ,thank god, was able to move into the other lane to avoid hitting him. My husband was very shaken and the situation could have been much worse . I am glad you are ok and you are right, in an instant our lives and those of others can change .
Hugs,
Jackie

Glad you are okay! I wouldn't have been as kind as you... my vocabulary would have been filled with different words other than "almost chuckled" ;) But, I think you have inspired me to smile the next time things get tense :)

Your art is so lovely and sweet... as I imagine your personality to be, too :)
