Have you ever had one of those moments in life where nothing is really out of the ordinary, and yet it is? Something about that moment sets it apart from all the other moments that make up the day. It’s going to be one of those moments you’ll remember 10 years down the line.

Today I went up to M&S, a local UK chain store, to pick up some lunch. On the way back in my little rattle box Mini Cooper I’m cruising along some back roads to avoid construction. As I motor along through the farm fields on this hot sunny Scottish day, munching on some cheese and listening to a lousy UK radio station, something about that moment is going to stay in my memory for years. I don’t know if it was the smell and feel of the air blowing through the open window, the sound of the car, the way the white sheep stood out in the vibrant green fields, or the way the sun shone down highlighting all around me. But the whole combination combined to a perfect moment in time.

It will be a memory I will enjoy for years to come.
