NE Alberta and 14th PL

28 May

Stood in the rain
grinning like an idiot
like THE idiot
crying in that infamous
video clip.

I wondered if I should run the risk
of missing out by running inside to
grab the camera,
or be truly in the moment.

Five years before
I had no choice
as I had no camera
and had to settle on enjoying
it through the car window
as we crossed the Morrison St. Bridge out of town.

I ran back into the restaurant
reached into my backpack
to grab my camera phone
in an attempt to capture
what appeared to me as a divine sign of sorts,
saying that everything was okay
there was nothing to be afraid of
and that I was exactly where I needed to be.
