slipping away

For years I hiked these trails.

Hiked them with many friends. Some who live close by, some who live far away. And always with TheDog.

Since the car accident, I've let my summer Saturday routine slip away. Too painful to do our usual route, our hikes became walks near home.

I didn't realize how much I missed those summers, until today's beautiful weather. Until I wished I'd grabbed TheDog and headed to the hills.

We would have had to take the low trail, since neither of us is in any shape for the usual. But that would have been perfect. Perhaps in a few weeks.

I miss these too, for about much of the same reason. But in a few weeks snow might be flying up there. It can't stay warm & dry forever. (Well only a few millennia mind you, but you get the point). Cheers & Good Luck, 'VJ'

My weekend morning routine has changed quite a bit in the last year - nothing to do with weather or fitness... just desire. It sure is a lot easier to get up early and hit the trails when you have a furry little friend to share it with.

Sorry, Jeremy. The idea that TheDog will not be around forever is part of what made me miss those days so.
