Still around the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate;
And though I oft have passed them by,
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.JRR Tolkien
It is September, 2021 and Sydney is starting to come out of its longest lockdown, slowly. The world has changed, I have changed. While 2020 was incredibly painful for a number of personal reasons, it combined into a perfect storm with the turbulence of a global pandemic and ensuing panic and adjusting to changes. The hope of 2021 was short lived, as we plunged into a new strain and an extended, and what felt like never ending, lockdown. There are signs of hope, however, and life will change as it does.
I thought I would share some of my favourite images I took on the very many walks during this time.
