WALKS 2005

 

ABOUT ME               WALKS

 Hello and welcome to the start of my journey , when I was here at this point in my life  I hadn’t got a clue what was possible and what wasn’t all I got told is that “we are all different” and on a good day you will make the shops and back ………………..Make the shops and back my arse . I guess my life was at a cross roads at this point I could either spend the rest of my life sitting on my fat arse watching day time TV and living on state benefits (giving up?) or I could chose to pick myself up dust myself down and start to rebuild things again ……yes I buggered things up more times than I got it right in the early days but one thing kept me going and that was ……………what’s around the bend in the track? Or what’s over that small hill? , can I make that point without totally knacking myself , what happens if I do this or what happens if I can’t do that ………….yep life at this point was something I wasn’t really  ready for . however that yearning to get away from it all and find some peace in the distant hills kept me going and so like all journeys mine started with a single step, I won’t bore any one with my many walks in between the bars at the hospital or even around my local street, or my housing Est but will start with my very first (admittedly small) walks away from it all out in the countryside where nature slowly but surely healed me despite being a complete idiot.

So come on take a deep breath grab a cup of tea or coffee or something stronger if you want  and join me on my journey where I start to regain my life again ………………..it started with just one step and who knows where it will take me . Enjoy:-
