I want to thank everyone for your encouraging comments on my last post when I was feeling somewhat discouraged. I feel much better and more determined to keeping moving.There is so much variety outside this time of year that it literally calls me outdoors which is great. Even if I can't go very far or fast, mentally I believe it will help me to continue on with regular walks.
Yesterday I managed to go for a photo walk and stopped every time I felt like taking a picture, rather than planning on part of the walk being geared more towards exercise. When I'm tired, that's what I'm going to try to do.I am also going to look into easy classes, especially for the hot summer months. Something that recently dawned on me is this might be a good time for me to consider the Feldenkrais method. I took a Feldenkrais class about 20 years ago called awareness through movement at Arts Together where my daughter was taking pre-school creative dance. I remember that a lot of older women were in that class who were taking is specifically because they had physical problems.
When I found the link to the national Feldenkrais site, I discovered that there are several different people who have classes in my area. I remember at the time I took awareness through movement that it was a big turning point for me. I had dealt with severe endometriosis and a radical hysterectomy at the time and I found the class to be very helpful. In general I feel good about trying to keep moving towards that light at the end of the tunnel. I went to the tunnel I have tried to photograph in the past and took some more shots. I am going to keep going back there until I hit it when the lighting is perfect. The shots above were taken from both ends of the tunnel. Of course the optimal conditions for light at one end won't be optimal for the other end so I'm sure I'll need to try a lot of different times of day.
