The View From The Top...
“It’s easier to go down a hill than up, but the view is from the top." - Arnold Bennett
There are two reasons I love walking to the top of the hill I call my ‘thinking hill’.
One is for the walk itself. It’s an 8 mile round trip and I enjoy the exercise.
The other is for the view from the top. There’s nothing like a great view to put things into perspective - reminding ourselves of the passage of time required to create the landscape, realising how tiny our problems are compared to the enormity of the world around us, and, of course, because a beautiful view can fill the mind with creative possibility.
I think everyone needs a ‘thinking hill’….
