Look Up

Sometimes I can think I know almost all the roads around here, that there’s little new to notice. And then I look in a different direction or vary a regular route and something new will reveal itself.

Today, climbing the back way up from Henley I happened to look up and the simple fact of all the trees there are in these parts struck me afresh. The weather systems and seasons may be wrecked, but superficially at least, things are looking lush and healthy. Appearances, of course, can be deceptive.
