What a trip! A few weeks ago I wouldn't have called it that but I finally got out with Lady this afternoon. No, it wasn't the colours, it was a greyish autumn afternoon and we didn't get as far as the forest, what's more with one cataract operation behind me and a second to come, the eyes are moving at different speeds so I missed subtle details .... but I was out there. It wasn't a brisk, warming walk with the circulation buzzing and the skin glowing, the movement was slow with frequent stops, the sciatic nerve to my left leg is still not completely free .... but I was out there.
There were others out there as well: cyclists, walkers, a group of runners. I know why they were there. There is a lot I don't know but Nature drives me (at the moment crawling along in 1st gear, but you need fuel even for that). I don't understand Nature but it gives me meaning and reason to be.
I am enjoying your blogs, but not able to write a lot at the moment.
Such is farming.
