Seeing the Details

My car broke last week. Or rather, I broke my car last week.

As a result, I had to catch the bus to work for four days. I drive that commute twice a day, five days a week. When I’m concentrating on the road and steering my car, there are things that I just don’t notice. I’ve learnt so much more about the route whilst sitting on the bus. I spotted hotels, schools and other landmarks that I had no idea existed.

Catching the bus also allowed me to see other things that I would otherwise miss out on, like this picture that someone drew on the wall of the bus shelter.

  1. So true, I have the same experience when I use the bus…..also I find I arrive in a different state of mind….I’m more open and contemplative, probably because I haven’t been fighting with the other drivers 🙂 isn’t that a great piece of art on your bus shelter

    1. It’s amazing what you notice when you look isn’t it? I always try to remind myself to look up when I am in a city – it’s so easy to only notice the world at eye level. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
