"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Autumn again

This is one view I see on my way to work in the morning so today, I left a little earlier, parked in a layby and took some photos, including this one, watched incredulously by a line of traffic - people on their way to work, rushing headlong into the day, heedless of the views around them. One of the things I love most about living here is that, even in town, you only have to lift your eyes to see the hills of Wales in the distance - a salutary reminder not to get bogged down in the minutiae of the day's events.
(That's the theory, anyway!)

You might not be if you could see all the rain we keep getting! I can't remember the last day it didn't rain! :)
Click on my Webshots photo album link on the side bar - I have loads of photos of north Wales there.

Thank you, Jenny, for the reminder. And the photo. Lovely!
