Come take a walk with me.

Today the sun is shining and this reminded me of one day last week when along with my daughter Leah went for a walk around our beautiful Welsh village.

Over the past two weeks I have re shuffled my days totally. I took a couple of weeks off to get to grips with my writing course ;also a trip to the doctor was needed as I was suffering greatly with back pain;which arises from two operations to remove discs from my lower spine.

My doctor stated quite emphatically that I had to divide my day into an hours writing and then to move around to keep all as supple as I can.

Then to take a short walk daily if I could ;I knew my back will never be right but I also realised that I had to shuffle my daily routine.

He also stated as he knows me too well that I also had to refrain from too much heavy physyical work too.

This may sound a little bleak; dilapidating for the want of a better word; but far from it as I have taken on board all my doctor said and this extra walking is brilliant for shedding those extra pounds too.

II am a glutton for punishment (as so many of us tend to be) and carry on and on regardless of back pain ;(I think it's a little misguided mind over matter issue) but I have finally realised that in order to enjoy my life fully for a long time to come I have to listen.So it's a healthy balance of all that's needed.

So today I am sharing my photos and Rictameter poems with you all to share that despite some health issues we can indeed still enjoy great beauty which surrounds us all !!!

I hope you enjoy mine and Leah's walk ;because we had a wonderful couple of hours.

I also enjoy experimenting with different photo modes hence today's pics.

Let's walk

Yes let's enjoy

Beauty so free of charge

Happiness seeps into each heart

Mother Nature's caressing sweet blossoms

So alive,so treasured,so great

Birds are a-calling

Come hold my hand

Let's walk.

Walk on

As we shall taste

Mother Nature's soothing

Contagious wondrous emotions

To inhale her unconditional love

To share in her unselfish ways

Soothing each broken heart

Oh yes we shall

Walk on.



A signpost which if you notice our village is spelt in the old way of Kilgerran .Whereas today it is spelt Cilgerran.Another quaint gem to add to the beauty that surround me daily.

How fresh

How bewitching

How green is her kingdom

A self belief oh so radiant

Inhale her hope,faith and true love

Tell the world of her awesome ways

Wish these for others as you pray

Your heart will lead you on

New messages

So fresh.

This way

Through life's great gate

Venture to pasture's new

Taste each wonder so beautiful

Each warm heart beating in time to our own

Beautiful moments to absorb

A world full of treasures

Lives so precious

This way.

Blossoms

For each warm heart

Scents and sweet aromas

Life's tender paths now clear and bright

A vibrant new light full of self belief

I share with you

Blossoms.


I hope you all enjoyed our walk and remember the sun is always there;the birds always sing ;you may just have too look a little harder some days.

Here's wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Lots of love to each and everyone from my little corner of Wales.

Sorry to hear about your back problems Eddy. I know that I sit far too long in front of the computer and also "kill" myself doing heavy yard work at times. Think that I will listen long distance to your doctor's advice also and go for more walks. Enjoyed tagging along on yours. Mother Nature is wonderful and you have shown it in verse and lovely photos. Up and beautiful votes. Enjoy your weekend!

Beautiful work and I know what fun it is messing with the pictures, my favorite thing to do anymore, wish I had been into it many years ago, but better late than never. Walking really is great for you and it is the picture taking that makes it so easy isn't it? We have to build those muscles up around our bones so they don't snap on us. It will be hard on you to give up sitting to be online I am sure, but as long as you don't do it too long at a time, maybe you can't keep from getting additional damage. Hope so, God bless.

Thank you Jackie for your kind and caring comment. I think when someone explains it as bluntly as my doc did it does make you sit up and listen;and when it leaves me with more time to do other things that I love doing it is not too difficult to stick to. Have a great day my friend.
