Do you begin and end your day with the world framed by a window or windscreen? Maybe it’s your own or perhaps it is the fingerprint smeared one of the bus or train. Do you run? Or cycle? Do you stare ahead, focussed on the point of horizon, enjoying the sensation of the landmarks flying past you? Or do you walk? Head dead ahead. Music sounding. Telephone chattering. Daydreaming.

Have you walked or driven the same route for as long as you can remember? Have you one day, for whatever reason, looked up and seen something that surprised you? A building above a shop perhaps? A blue plaque? A piece of graffiti impossibly high up? A flag. This blog is about what you can see when you tilt your chin and see a different view of your everyday world.

Look up.

You might enjoy it.

You might see something good.

Til Death

I've noticed this sign a few times on the way back from work but it is always too dark to take a picture. Last week I made sure on my way to work to turn around and get a quick snap. Funerals are never fun. I've seen a lot of funeral parlours that dress death up as something that needs lots of money and glitz pumped into it to make it an acceptable part of life. Each to their own I guess.This company seems to be part of the old club and seems to stand for a quiet, solemn affair. It's sign suggests simplicity and functionality which I think are never bad things at a dark time in someones life.
