Maze 176: This morning I went to the grocery store. I had on sweat pants and a coat and hat. My coat (given to me by my Mom) is pretty new but nothing special. Its a dark blue jean like material but goes past the waist.
Anyway I was walking down the snack isle and saw one of the stockers. We stared at each other longer than usual. I asked him hows it going and he replied “What are you a lawyer?” I laughed and asked what made him think that. He said because of my coat.
Now I happen to know several lawyers and have never seen them wear a coat like this. And looking at the coat I wouldn’t classify it as worn by anyone with a specific job just a person who wants to be warm. Two weeks ago someone else made a comment about the coat as well, just not over the top.
So my family and I discussed it and cannot figure out whats up with the coat. I kinda wonder since I’m succeeding and feeling more confident about my art, do i give off a vibe of importance? I know that I feel very good about the direction things are taking so maybe the way I walk and talk inside my coat is giving people the vibe that I’m a person of importance.
I chose the quote because it makes so much sense. I have discussed several times during this project my need to enjoy the moment, appreciate all that I have instead of just living. My goal today is to take time to truly experience each moment and all the things that I take part in today.
