It was all so different before everything changed

By dudler  
Title is from a poster I had at college: trees are from the outskirts of hte town I grew up in. I've driven past them a thousand times: this was the first time I'd stopped - they're on a bend, and there are no obvious stopping places.

They're nothing special: which can be said, in many ways of the town - and of every home town.

In the end, though, there's something very special about not being special. About being oneself, not trying to be someone else. About being good at what you do, without having to be 'world class'.

And about where you come from, just because it was good, and provincial, and workaday.

On the contrary, I think that they are special, lush, lovely and beautifully placed.

Well, Lynne - actually, that's how I see the town... And it's always easier to see things with hindsight, 45 years after leaving...

Wise words. We never truly appreciate something until it's no longer there, sadly.
And to be able to be ourselves, and let others be themselves, is a gift that's priceless.
