Wordless Wednesday – winter and the tracks of my life
No more ‘jealousy/wish you were here’ shots of beaches from me for the moment, I’m back home into full-on winter mode – it’s wet, grey, cold and just a tad miserable outside.
These tracks are throughout the forest at the rear of our property and over the years my husband has built up a system of walking and mountain bike tracks. He enjoys the physical effort required, the mental and technical approach, deciding where to go next and if it will work. He then enjoys the actual walking or mountain biking to test it all out. I am now using them as running tracks. It’s a slower pace than on the forest roads but trail running makes a nice change and I’m not that fast a runner at the best of times! While I run I let the world go and let the forest cast its magic over me.
A local cycle group is currently building up the tracks for use by mountain bikers of all levels and my husband is in his element guiding, advising and building.
I think there’s a certain beauty in the forest in winter, a starkness and a stillness that is a welcome change to other areas of life. Would you agree?
Last week my blogging friend Suzanne at Global Housesitter x2 suggested I change the name of my Wordless Wednesday posts to Worth a Word Wednesday, as I rarely seem able to refrain from using some words in these posts, despite the title!!
What do you think of her suggestion? Maybe I could start a new trend!!
Check out Suzanne’s latest post, RoadTrip Part 2, she’s currently housesitting in Turkey and sharing some of her and the Squire’s experiences, it’s always interesting to see what they’re up to! Thanks again for the suggestion Suzanne!
I love it when people leave me a comment, so don’t be shy – comment away!
