The magical glance backward


Today I decided to go on a little excursion on my lunch break.  Someone told me about a cool gallery/used clothes boutique that is only about a half mile from my work.
So I threw on my runners (as the Canadians say) and power walked my way over.  What started out as a flat city jaunt quickly turned into a super steep hill-  those ones that San Francisco is famous for.  Of course being the SLO girl that I am, I took that hill like it was Bishop’s Peak- charge forward and don’t look back.  But right as I reached the top of the hill, I also had to turn onto another street and as I did, I glanced to the side and then swung my head around – stunned to see such an epic view of the city. So unexpected.  Just a random street corner in the city and yet what a view!

For someone that forges forward rarely looking back, today reminded me that sometimes glancing back can give such a different perspective– especially after a tough hike/ season in life.

I got a pic on my phone– doesn’t quite hold the same weight as seeing it in person…but still fun to share.
