A new view
Sometimes it only takes a few hundred yards detour to give you a whole new view of the world... One of my friends lives about half a mile away, across the main road that holds most of our local shops. We set off for a walk and instead of walking along the busy main road, as I would have done, she took me through a short cut behind the shops, along a little grassy path across a little bit of open land that I didn't even know was there. Not only was there this magnificent tree full of exuberant blossom to enjoy but I got a whole new view of the church that I attend, seen across the field from its east end. I think it's only recently that this view was opened up, since a large residential care home opposite the church was demolished a while ago. Life is full of discoveries, for those who have eyes to see and a willingness to try new things.
