When You Always Want More

It is about 15 minutes walk. You will see it on your right. There is no way you can miss it, she said. I am doing as told. My feet is dusty and dirty and I am sweating even from my …. (You don’t need to know that). I keep going. There is nothing that looks…

Take Time to Explore the Gold Around

I have taken some time to enjoy the golden fall. Caught fewer trams. Have you ever been on a tram? We have had some beautiful days here in Nottingham. Filled with sunshine, crispy cold, and blue skies. I do not remember the last time I took such a big admiration in my surroundings. Guilty of rushing and obsessing…
