Heading home past Central Library,
We're standing near the Midland hotel, looking across the road at the Central Library, with St. Peter's Square in the distance. It's after 5pm and commuters are beginning their journey home. A number cross the road, taking advantage of one of the many light controlled crossings. Perhapsthey're enjoying that feeling of relief that the day's work is done. Maybe they're still pondering the issues of the day. Some will be heading home. Others might have errands to complete first, and still others may have more exciting plans for the evening.

When we were in the heart of Manchester, a city with a cornucopia of delights to entertain amuse and nourish the soul intent on revelry. Central Library is a familiar landmark. Although not as ancient as it appears, being constructed in the 1930s. It's still a grand old Dame and worthy of attention.

One Piccadilly is just visible in the distance, with its distinctive cutaway walls. It reminds me of lace work or the carved screens in mediaeval churches. A line of trees, form a green belt which virtually crosses the painting, a small gap draws the eye to a solitary traffic light pole, tiny figures amble around, oblivious to their environment. Now is not the time to take in the sights. We're homeward bound, past the central library. Will the tram be there? Have I got time to pop to the shop and make the bus?

People are living their ordinary lives, enjoying an ordinary day, and thinking of home.
