GodsBigBlog: Walking, Talking — and Limping

Mt. Tamalpais, Marin County, CA

By Barbara Falconer Newhall

I’ll be walking, walking, walking with a friend on a high ridge tomorrow. Not getting in shape for anything. Just the pleasure of walking and doing a lot of talking as is my wont, which is why I’m known as The Talking Pew in some circles.

However, and this is a big however, I stubbed my toe seriously on a misplaced laundry basket earlier today, and tomorrow I might be doing a block or two of limping and that’s it.

The toes -- in happier days

Why do we have to stub our toes just when life is looking good, the weather forcast is for glorious and my friend and a new trail, high on a ridge, await?

    Can’t even walk a block today. Hike cancelled. Sigh.
