Days wandering

Posted on

You can be surprised when you go out and about for a wander. I went to visit my daughter in Derby the other day. It was such a joy seeing her and then we added to that by taking a good walk around parts of the city centre. I had few expectations of Derby as a city and was really surprised. We managed to find a whole raft of interesting little alleyways, the odd arcade, nice pubs, cafes and more – art shops included.

I have a love of places where history has added texture to what is around you, even better when that texture still has life and is felt and enjoyed.

Sometimes if you open the door to a new memory it will serve you for a long time. If that door and what surrounds it has a history placed well within the present it can mean something more.

There are particular emotional qualities to a sunset, sometimes hesitant, sometimes warm, somehow comforting even though it signals an ending – the end of the day. It does signal the start of evening or night and the gentle winding down of effort.
Having an urban skyline and occasional foliage also adds an extra quality.
