Why I turned my head to the window at all, I can’t now recall.
But what I saw I haven’t seen for many a month, but if I’m honest that’s just because I haven’t really looked – I’ve been ‘too busy’.
Only now in winter does the light and weather do justice to the drama and intricate detail of the landscape.
So what did I see?
Just that – the landscape, not just as a rough canvas of land sea and sky that serves as a backdrop for our own lives, but having a being and purpose all of its own, and in which we have but a small and fleeting part to play.
