2008_0521roof0016Variety is the spice of life. However, too much spice spoils the food. It is the subtle differences that bring about a pleasant change. It is the slight change of perspective that teaches us something new. Trying an old trick a new way uncovers a skill. Approaching the same situation from another angle helps get us out of the rut.

I thought about this today as I was getting dressed. I don't know why, but I put my left leg into my trousers first. It felt weird! I then realised that I don't think I have ever done that before.

Also I bought a new camera. Fiddling around with all the settings and functions, I notice that the subtle changes in setting help bring out a variety of finished products.

I have helped Ken replace the 95 year old roof on his house. Looking at the valley from on top of the house gives me a new perspective.2008_05270048 

I have thoroughly enjoyed the time I had on the Murphy's farm at Eureka. The relaxed and slowed down pace of life has been good for me and taught me many things about myself and the world around me. This time comes to an end this week, and another change comes along. I will be in Sydney for a month before heading back to Ukraine.

As the spice of life varies around me, my goal is to remember one thing:

"The main thing is that the main thing remains the main thing."
