Seeing things differently

I noticed that my eyes see differently. I
When we visited the last cemetery yesterday, we were amazed at all the old zinc statues and headstones.

When I used to visit cemeteries I would look for unusual headstones or plaques but for esthetic purposes only. I found myself , of late, really thinking more about the potential stories of the families, the history etc.

I have much more interest in the background of things than the things themselves now. My sense of observation has increased so much since the Camino. Perhaps it was based on the fact that I had so much more time to think about whatever I was observing. Perhaps it was the lack of so many distractions that kept me from extensive observation.

Whatever the reason(s), I now feel my experiences will be much fuller !
