The Rite of Spring

finding the moment

It’s been extremely frustrating recently, not being able to get out on long walks, due to an excessive workload. A change of scenery and a good long walk with a bunch of people is very good for the soul. Getting muddy boots and feeling the fresh air is invigorating. I’m so missing it.

It’s been too long, I think the furthest I’ve walked since November is probably about 6 miles. Mainly from Clapham to Brixton, the furthest being to Chelsea, or Penge via Crystal Palace Park.

I’m not getting anywhere near my 10,000 steps a day, due to cycling to work and back. Still, improvements have been made to my working life which is why I haven’t been getting out. So Happy Easter, welcome to a damp weekend.

Frogs doing what frogs do!

 

SOUTH DOWNS LEWES SUSSEX

This time last year or thereabouts I had decided to go off on my own walking across the South Downs and came across these mating frogs. I really enjoyed being out in nature. I will be having my 1st non-urban walk April 13/4/2018 re-visiting, The South Downs Lewes for a similar walk.

If I can have a few wee runs around the park during the next coming weeks, it should prepare me a bit for my practice walk from Hastings to Rye at the end of April.  I will be leading that June the 1st so need to get out and learn the route. Luckily someone wants to do it with me, so less chance of getting lost. I’m also leading Seaford to Eastbourne in May.

Sharing Blogs

In the meantime, I would like to share an old blog written by a yoga teacher who I met in Scotland back in 2011, at a yoga retreat.

Beautiful Lake

Looking back at the pictures I feel a strange wave of sadness.

I haven’t seen anywhere as beautiful since.
