Life and living
Life has a nasty habit of getting in the way of living, as it goes along with no regard for the important things. Mundane tasks such as shopping for food, obtaining prescriptions, preparing for winter and attending activities for children and grandchildren take precedence and soon become all encompassing. It takes a very real effort to get back to 'living' activities that provide enjoyment and quality of life benefits. And, of course, the weather also gets in the way; five inches of snow on unplowed roads is pretty much a show-stopper. However, I'm somewhat content to shrug off these minor inconviences and look at maps and catalogs, dreaming and planning for getting back to living.
