One of the pluses about being retired is that you have more time to do the things you want instead of being permanently tied to the day job. However I have noticed that since retiring I have spent a lot more time at health facilities sorting out (fingers crossed) minor ailments. I have come to the conclusion that this is the universe reminding me that ‘nothing’s perfect’.

Anyway, this morning I headed off to the local hospital to see the physio which brought about some pleasant discoveries and proved to me that you should approach every outing however mundane with curiosity .

I got the bus to the hospital (bus passes are a wonderful thing) and was heading from the bus stop to the main entrance past a flowerbed when I noticed a woman taking a photo. I stopped to see what she had spotted and saw that the flowerbed contained a very beautiful and unusual lily. She was trying to get closer to the plant by leaning over the palings and then spotted that there was in fact a way in. I turned back towards the hospital entrance and then thought ‘what the heck’ (I was early as usual) and joined her. We took pictures together for a few minutes and had a conversation about photography.

It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.

My second bit of sparkle is that our local hospital actually has an art trail! How amazing is that?

No time to follow it today but will certainly be back.
