Stop the Car!

Last week I went on a drive with my mom. She has broken her arm and I visited her for a few days to help out at home and be some company to her.
We went into the city, wandered around the shops and did a pretty good job at window shopping.

The sun began to set as we started our journey back home. We left the city behind us and drove through fields and smaller villages.
The car turned around a corner and then we saw it.

Stop the car!


I pulled over as the whole car was suddenly illuminated in bright light.
We were bathed in the warm sun light, like a cozy blanket the sun wrapped itself around us on this beautiful fall evening.

As the light fell on our faces we couldn’t help but smile and drink in the light deep inside of us, as if we wanted to store it for all the dark days ahead of us. 

We stood there and watched, amazed.
Cars drove by and people looked at us strangely.
But we just waited until the sun had vanished behind the hills.

Welcome to Day 30 of 31 Days of Mundane Narratives! For the month of October I will be a storyteller. Together with a few friends we will browse the forgotten photos in our galleries and tell the stories that are so often lost in busyness.
