Today I went to visit a friend and had a lovely morning playing with dogs, that was until Artemis and Humboldt decided to chase the cockerel - we all left chastened by the behaviour. I hope the cockerel is not too traumatised, the two puppies barely batted an eye lid when they were told off and are now out playing on the lawn here at home.
Coming home I stopped the car and just looked at this view for several minutes. It reminded me to look at the bigger picture (I live on the right hand slope of the mountain in the centre in the far distance). We get so caught up in the minute details of our every day lives that sometimes we forget to refocus and look outside the box we live in.
We have the ability to pan in and out though we often get so caught up and wrapped up in our own importance that it takes a major shock to jolt us out of that habit pattern behaviour.
A few weeks ago I left the last job that linked me to the horse racing world, it was a habit, it was cosy (in a fashion) but for me it was not healthy to be involved any longer. I have been twiddling with the view finder on my life looking to bring the new into focus - but I am not sure what I am looking for, I am scanning the environment looking for that point that triggers my interest before I focus in on it.
Sometimes though what we are meant to see is not always visible from where we are standing (see Perspective) or we are relying on other parties to remove the invisibility cloak.
So here I am / was sitting on the hill, looking over the panorama spread out in front of me looking for the route that I am going to venture out on. I know what / where I would like to head but not sure if that is in the Divine plan or other peoples' plans for me.
