Trails and Goals

Seven trails follow the two rivers that cross through our little town. Last Autumn, I touched on a few of them, but know that I’ve only just scratched the surface.

This one runs behind our community, just beyond my capacity to wander…now. I have goals for myself. One of them being to strengthen my legs and build up to greater distances.

Others are a short drive away. That’s my second goal – to drive again, enough to reach the trail heads. Sundays will be the best day, as our main street shops close down and the traffic is light.

Having a chronic illness, especially one that knocks the stuffing out of you like Myalgic Encephaloymyelitis, is like having the reset button pushed, and starting all over again.

I’m up for the challenge.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Bravo for you! The human body (in spite of aging and diseases) is constantly renewing itself and capable of “growing”. I keep telling myself this, as I too am focused on increasing capacity for moving about on my own two legs. Here’s to self-mobility!

  2. I wish you well with your goals. Sounds daunting, but I bet you will meet the challenge head on! With my morning bleary eyes, I thought the title of this post was Trails and Goats. If you see goats on your trails, let us know. 🙂
