Isolation #21

Another day, another ‘what shall I do today’ pondering and without a regime it is easy to let the time slip aimlessly and so I have accumulated a number of tasks and put them in some kind of order. Exercise is vital and I have an alternate days programme between walking and yoga stretches with Chi Gung energy raising exercises. I’ve even dusted off some light weights to rejuvenate my winter arms!!

The other afternoon I ventured out on a longer walk than usual and to be honest, felt a little vulnerable walking alone in woods and isolated pathways but that is perhaps only because I’d always been used to having Martin with me. I think I will take a walking stick in future and practice some Tai Chi stick moves at home!!

The field gate is such an evocative image – it conjures images of country folk resting along their walk to regard the views. But it also means a barrier to where one can go and that is a bit like these social isolation times. However there is a well-signed series of footpaths further up the the road and that is all the invitation I require. I wonder how others are doing with their daily exercise.

For as long as I'm well, am posting a pic a day to enhance these Covid-19 times of isolation and lockdown
