Shot Of The Day

Stopping to Ponder

We just rarely do. Stop to ponder the meaning of it all. In a foreign country where your senses are so elevated, it’s so much easier to see this fact. On vacation, you want to savor everything. The food. The air. The sights. The smells. The language. The differences. The small things. That elevated awareness also makes one notice how those who are so accustomed to the environment don’t savor it as much. This kitten was on a busy cobblestone street filled with rushing people, but she was just savoring the moment, unmoved by all the commerce and general press of life. I wish I could have watched her to see how long it would have taken for her to move, but my tour buddies were ready to go!
