Extremes

Today I want to talk about extremes – and about focus. Both change everything.

For a while now I’ve been reminiscing about my recent trip to Jordan. For a change of pace, I’ve been inserting the occasional picture from a trip to Vancouver a few years back. Jordan is farther, but Vancouver is still a long way from home, even if it is in the same country. But today, I’m going to show pictures from my back yard, as we say here – back garden if you are from across the pond. It took me longer to run upstairs for the camera than it did to walk outside to take these pictures. One extreme to the other.

And the same picture, but with a different focus.

It truly is amazing the difference a change in focus makes. I think this might just be a metaphor for travel and for home. The same life and yet in many ways so different. But each beautiful in its own way.

Okay, okay. Enough of the philosophy thing. What can I say – a wonderful meal with a delightful wine will do that to me.
