Spooked

I had such an amazing shopping day; I bought this cool fedora hat, not Justin Timberlake Justified album fedora, but an old school wool one. I had every intention of posting my buys but my awesome day ended quite bizarrely. I witnessed the aftermath of a man getting hit by a SUV. I was about a block and half away from my apartment and I hear a loud 'boom'; I see fragments of the car flying and a few feet ahead there's a man lying lifelessly on the ground. I couldn't believe my eyes. The SUV came to a stop and the young man driving sprung out of his car panicked. He couldn't believe what had happened and I could tell that he knew his life had just changed. I just wanted to console him; he was completely horrified at what he had done. I called 911 along with other onlookers and walked home in a daze. All I can think about is that man lying on the street. I wonder if he saw the car and if he did, was he scared. I'm really hoping that he firstly survives and that he will be alright, that both men will be alright.


Life is fleeting, enjoy every moment.
(I'm a little freaked out; I feel as though life has become a series of landmines we have to avoid and any misstep may result in one blowing up.)

I saw a guy get thrown off his motorcycle in an accident before, so I know the feeling.

As sad as it sounds, other people's tragedies often help us to remember that we need to live our life as if everyday is our last.

Anyways, I really hope the both men are ok. (The guy in the motorcycle crash I saw lived, just so you know.)

Every day walking and driving on the street we take this risk. We must cherish our days, indeed.
