Each morning as I drive my kids to school the sun casts the most beautiful crisp golden light across the landscape. Usually we are hurrying to get to school, and by the time I am on the way home this brief window of magical light is past.
But recently we have met a wonderful family with whom we covoiturage, saving us an hour of drive time back and forth to school each day. So today, as I was returning from dropping the kids off at the rendez-vous du matin a half hour earlier than usual, I pulled to the side of the road and grabbed my camera to capture a few images of the still-lingering golden hour.
So what began as a convenient arrangement with strangers to save some gas, turned into a far more valuable gift: a few extra minutes each day to pause and appreciate the beauty of our new surroundings.
