On your back beyond the sea

It never fails - stop to count your woes and pretty soon you'll catch sight of all your uncounted blessings. That happened for me today. I was in court (as an observer, not a witness, accused, prosecutor or advocate) and I met some very brave people who were succeeding despite really onerous circumstances. I also met some great people who worked together to help change people's lives. It was gratifying.
I knew it was going to be a great day as I stepped off the train and spotted this written hastily on the steps:



  1. Cool. If we look carefully around us, we see things we don't expect to be there. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love the little random things people put out there to cheer others!

  3. I love your observations of things I'd never notice - one of the reasons I get so much out of your posts. My husband does the same thing. It makes the world seem a wondrous place. It's great you get to meet brave and inspiring people through your work.

  4. You're welcome, Shy!

    It's a real generosity of spirit, Lawyerdoll. I wonder if they realise how much joy it brings people.

    Jenny, you are exceptionally kind to say that! Thank you very much - I'm glad you enjoy my observations, and really grateful you take the time to tell me! Much appreciated!
