I don’t know, maybe our mothers had it right when they told us to ‘go play outside’!
Ingrid and I have found that simple activities like walking are helping us process our thoughts as well as get some exercise at the same time.
Duh…you say. We all knew that already. You’re right, we all did, but what we’ve found is that even the simple tasks can become complicated as your brain and body go through the shock of loss. NOTE: I’m not a doctor! These thoughts are simply first hand accounts as we take this journey…enough of a disclaimer? 😉
In any event, Cathy (yes, that’s AC) and Brent took us for a walk…or should I say their beautiful black lab, Indie, took us all for a walk. I need to mention that Brent said it was a short uphill stroll followed by a walk through alpine meadows…he also mentioned something about a Starbucks at the top.
Straight uphill, 60 seconds of alpine and then straight downhill later, we never did find the Starbucks…but we’re not that bitter.
Thanks you guys…that hike was fantastic…just what we needed that day. Here’s a few video bits from the experience near Stave Lake (Mission, BC) last Sunday afternoon, April 4, 2010.
