So my plan for the day was to dash out to Concord to pick up a painting and get back to the studio. However once on Route 2 there was a huge traffic mishap that had cars backed up in all directions. Fortunately there were no fatalities and thankfully some miracles did occur. With the usual route roadblocked we had to detour. Again another inconvenience that for me became a silver lining. On my detour I first saw an owl, then a few miles down, the road opened into stunning landscapes that are breathtaking. Places I am now planning to revisit with my sketchbook, camera and paints in this season of winter and the seasons to come. So even though my dash turned into a two hour journey I am glad I was made to detour. So next time you are out think about that road not traveled and take a chance for inspiration.
