I was taking my regular route back from the grocery store. But instead of passing that corner I always pass, I followed my impulse and turned, onto - not just a street, but a treasure trove of sights I'd never seen before.
Isn't it weird how the littlest thing can make your day? (Okay, maybe the littlest thing makes MY weird day.) But I love how a new route can be a surprise. Sometimes I like to get out of town and follow my nose, explore, go where the road takes me. But I can't always do that, so it's nice to know I can explore locally: take a new route, try a new restaurant, shop in a place with an unpronounceable name. There's always a discovery to be made.
When I've got more time I'm going to go back to my new favorite street and take more photos. Talk about unsticking my head.
