It’s a big overcast today and the dim light lends a certain muted color to surroundings. It also makes familiar sights seem, somehow, different.
You may think that I’m being a little overly poetic here, but it’s the absolute truth. While driving to work this morning, I kept thinking how strange things appeared. I’ve driven this exact same path hundreds of time since Cindy passed away, but today things were different. I was noticing signs that I had never noticed before. Familiar intersections looked unfamiliar until I saw the street sign. It was a very strange phenomenon, but it’s also a pretty accurate metaphor for my life these days.
A lot of things in life seem very familiar yet very strange at the same time. Little things like getting dressed for work or going to to the Cafe on Saturday morning all seem familiar and unfamiliar at the same time. I don’t know how to describe it and you may think that the cheese has finally slipped off my cracker,but this is a feeling that you really have to experience to fully understand. It’s not necessarily a bad feeling, but it’s definitely a strange one.
I hope you all have a happy Monday.
