I'm glad yesterday is over. I had been having visions of car wrecks and nightmares all week, and then while I was on the balcony about to take photos of some necklaces in the sunlight, I heard a horrible crash and saw this awful car wreck. Woody and I were standing in the very spot on the sidewalk where the gray car crashed just 30 minutes before. Same spot. I'm tired of people driving while texting/talking on cell phones/in too much of a rush. I've seen way too many car wrecks outside my window. I know accidents happen, but I also know a lot are preventable. This crash totally derailed me and I had to stop what I was doing and literally lie down for two hours and I cried and cried. I was so upset. I talked to D and he calmed me down. It made me think about my friend Julie who was killed in a car wreck last year. It made me scared to go back outside on the dangerous streets. It made me worry about my family. But I didn't let it control me, I went for a run a couple hours later (after vowing to only run on treadmills, which I despise), I went to the crash site (because just two hours before I vowed to never walk at that spot again) because I need to not let these things effect me the way they do. When they get in the way of real life, that's a problem.
Today is a new day.
