Yesterday, I had this idea that since I live in a walkable city, I should walk to do a few errands, not just for pleasure like walking in the park, which is usually is the case. But useful walking. Walking with a purpose, walking to move my body and to remove my car from the congestion that is in-town Atlanta traffic.
I was walking down the sidewalk when with no warning whatsoever, this massive branch crashed down three feet in front of me, destroying that fence. Three seconds later it would have been me!
Have no idea what I was doing that delayed the appointed rounds of my day by three seconds. But I’m grateful just the same. I called my brother right after it happened and sent him this pic. “Go out right away and buy a lottery ticket,” he told me.
