Absentee

Yes, we had a city wide election this week, and yes, all my favorites won, and yes, I worked the polls from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. , and yes, I celebrated with the winners – but no, that’s not what I’m writing about today.

This is my car, all ready to go, with both pairs of hiking boots, socks, bug spray, hiking stick, and alas, my body has failed me yet again.  I have been an absentee from the trails for a couple of weeks.  It figures, now that spring is finally here and there are lovely days ahead, I’m temporarily sitting on the bench.  This time it’s my back.

But the good news is, I’m in Physical Therapy and water aerobics, and I hope to be out in nature again soon.  Meanwhile, I will live vicariously through all of you.

Happy Spring!

  1. Hi, Karen – I’m so sorry to hear that you have back pain — and that it has temporarily benched you from the trails. Sending warm vibes your way to get well soon!

  2. It’s so frustrating when you’re faced with a warm beautiful day and not able to take advantage of it doing the things you want to do …. like today 😕
    You’re doing the right thing though – seeing a physio. The trails will be there waiting for you when you’re ready! In the meantime, I hope you have a great weekend.
