Goodnight from Sydney: Nov 10

One of my readers sent me the first page of a book he is writing and asked me for my thoughts. The book starts with one of my favourite themes - "If I hadn't done A, then B would not have happened". I felt like that today about my walk.

I just didn't want to do it. My foot has been playing up for some and though I fancied the walk to my destination, the walk back did not appeal to me. However, I gritted my teeth and off I went.

If I hadn't, I would have missed this beautiful sight. A sea of jacaranda petals on the rocky bank of a small stream. By heck it did wonders for my soul - and for my feet!

Funny how the simplest - and least expensive things - can make such a big difference to so much else.

Wherever you may be - be safe
