There’s more to a musician’s life than writing and practising and it has always been useful to step back from problems of any kind and take a broad view. Walking has long been the favourite method, also bringing with it the benefits of exercise and fresh air. There is no finer way to bring perspective to our thoughts and efforts.
On my many walks I encountered suburban paths, alleyways and hidden green spaces, some of them just a few yards off the beaten track. Despite living in the same area for so many years, I genuinely didn’t know that some of these places existed.
My posts on the local Facebook group attracted a huge following, prompting me to consider producing paperback and Kindle books, now on Amazon.
