Voyage of Discovery

It's been a week for quotes - the universe must be trying to tell me something.

'The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new lands, but of seeing with new eyes.' Marcel Proust

I love the way I start seeing my local area in a different way when I have visitors to stay.  It begins even before they arrive, as I try to think of interesting places they will enjoy.

Working with a writing group or beta readers is much the same. I'm always fascinated by the way people see meaning in elements that maybe my subconscious added (if I'm that smart).  Or irritated at the errors I've missed over numerous edits. I hate that one - how did I miss typo?
