A "wee walk" intended to slough off some of the excess of the season turned out to be a bit more than we'd anticipated. Not wanting to retrace our steps, we kept going until we found an alternative way back. However, the scenery and the bracing air made the tramp worthwhile.
New year seems like a good time to veer from the familiar, perhaps even tried and tested ways, to open ourselves to the possibility of exploring the new.
Faced with the luxury of such choice, it would be a shame to squander the opportunity.
May this new year be, for you, one of such opportunity and discovery and one in which you are open to and enriched by new experience.
