As I write this, it is pouring and I am feeling sorry for myself.
I have been sidelined with a sprained foot for 3 weeks – and am looking at another week, at least, before I think I can join the gang again. Okay, it is a minor injury and it is healing, but, really, on top of COVID and just when I was getting back in the walking groove with my TPW buddies – very cranky making!
I really miss the walking and, maybe even more, I miss the company as I have throughout the lock down.
So, a reminder to us all, enjoy every step, every walk, every conversation. Savour the sensory delights of foot in front of foot; arms swinging; the smell of grass; the beauty of the cemetery’s greenery or the waterfront’s every changing view; and the voices of our friends chatting, punctuated often by laughter.
There, the rain has stopped and I have talked myself into feeling better. How lucky we are – I can hardly wait to rejoin you all.
I am looking forward to joining some of the group for a planned picnic lunch on the Toronto Island on Aug. 15. If you are interested, put it in your calendar and stay tuned.
