Thursday already

You cannot eat two baked potatoes, cream cheese, smoked salmon and two chocolates and expect your blood to be clean.


This morning I bit the bullet, as opposed to the fresh French Baguette in the bread bin. Put on my onesey, striped socks, muddy trainers and took to the road.

The moss looked greener, the wet bark on the Beech trees looked browner, the light felt sharper and the air was a mixture of smoke and damp loamy earth.

I've taken to ignoring anybody that passes me. I was told by some sort of Guru that saying good morning disempowers you. That smiling, acknowledging somebody in a walking meditation, takes up too much energy. Yes it does feel rude but I take her point. I focus on my feet, my breathing the music in my ears.

I focus on the tight muscles in my leg, I trick myself into thinking the hills are flat and the puddles are dry. I focus on the rhythm of my gait. Why I even march like an American GI.

Chanting affirmations for the old Pancreas. Shouting out loud the blocked thoughts. singing along, very loudly, to the riffs in my head.

I'm starting on a speech to motivate women. if you have any ideas about what you want included let me know.

It's time to put this old girl out there again. To get up on the podium and remind people that being old should not prohibit you from doing anything you want.

I am resisting the temptation to use the cliché that age is a state of mind - it's bollox - age is age use it, unashamedly and with abandon.

Gather thee rosebuds while ye may because rheumatism may set in any day....
