Sitting in a Tesco cafe after a hearty, cheap, veggie breakfast.
Gerry Rafferty’s “Baker Street ” plays over the somewhat intrusive store musack system, a favourite and evocative song for me.
It’s my last day of tenancy in the flat I’ve occupied since moving up to Scotland to make a new start in a new job, in August last year. It’s been a good home and fresh beginning that I feel sustainably refreshed by.
To quote from a poem by Maya Angelou:
The horizon leans forward,
Offering you space
New steps of change.
Step by step, I’m experiencing this.
At the same time, while feeling content with my current situation and happy with the new place I’ve moved to, today I feel like the rolling stone in the song, about to complete another step towards that horizon.
