Until August 2012, this blog was about training for the big Arthritis Society trek in Iceland, and then doing it. (Click the Iceland Trek category for my posts about the 10 days in Iceland.) It was an intense commitment for an intense experience.
As of August 2012… I walk on! With my feet, and in my mind as well.
Inspired by the words of Antonio Machado and Marcel Proust, I seek to create my own best path, for my own best life.
I am grateful to everyone who reads my blog, and especially to those who comment on a post. Your interest — your generous sense of community — help motivate me to walk more, explore more, be more curious and aware, seek always to have “fresh eyes,” and share my thoughts and interests with others. Thank you.
Finally, a request, which is difficult to express well. Please do not offer me any awards, even though I am very honoured by the offer (and in the past did participate in the process several times). I respect the positive motives for these awards: to honour and support fellow bloggers. At the same time, I am uneasy: the practice can promote rivalry and cause us to “rank” each other by awards received. I prefer to think of us all as equals, and to show my own appreciation with comments on posts I particularly like. Please do the same for me; you will make me very happy!
