What a Fool This Mortal Be

IMG_0944Last Saturday, I found myself diverted from a main road due to a funeral, but the rubes doing the detouring actually sent cars into the thick of the mourners’ traffic.

I was emotional that morning, having said goodbye to some people that I truly liked (see Friday’s entry about the yoga studio). Now I was sad, sweaty, hungry, and exasperated that my 12-minute commute home was already at the 25-minute mark.

Suddenly I saw the hearse to my right. The coffin came out slowly as black-clad people of all ages cried and shivered in 10-degree weather.

I realized at that moment that my sorrow ranked extremely low compared to the mourners, and I abruptly snapped out of my funk.
