A friend and co-author said to me not long ago, “Is the fool who laments on what cannot be helped.”
Well, she was right.
So, Campbell and I have gotten out and taken ourselves a walk.
We walked all the way from our house down to the corner at Borden Street and Willow where we wish there were a bus stop. Made a wish on the wind, and walked back to our house.
Then we walked all round our yard, house, and shed, in both directions.
We took our time, Campbell sniffed and snuffed until his sniffer could do nothing but sneeze, and then we did it all again.
We are back inside, full of sun and fresh air, I’ve folded a load of laundry, and am enjoying the last of my coffee.
There is mowing and weed-eating happening and this says spring is to hand.
As that was going on Campbell dozed off and while he was snoring the weed-eater hit something outside and made a loud banging noise!
Campbell jumped off the loveseat and went flying off through the house at top speed howling and barking for all he was worth.
I think he scared me worse than the bang!
I am determined this day to not allow myself to become depressed.
I am also determined to hunt a walking club and join it.
If I cannot find one, I’m going to create one.
The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the planet on which I live is still spinning.
There is breath in my body, and as long as I am alive and kicking there is hope.
I do not have to settle. I am determined to have that which I want.
In the meantime, I’m going to make the best of what I have.
