Giving directions

Coming back from the shops yesterday, we passed a man in a car who asked us for directions to the medical centre.

The medical centre is around the corner from my house, a 3 minute walk at most. This is the medical centre I have been going to for the 17 years I’ve lived in this neighbourhood.

But when someone asks for directions and I try to describe landmarks I was at a bit of a loss.

To got to work I either walk down this road or take a bus down this road, but when I’m walking i don’t look around and when I’m on the bus I’m hooked into my phone or into a book. I don’t look around, look at things, take in what’s new. I’m not actually present. I’m not taking in changes that are going in around me in my neighbourhood.

I need to work on that.
