Sunday uphill walking


Let's see if I can narrate this as a meaningful story...


Today the sun was shining so invitingly


that left no one unaffected.


So I left home with a friend and started walking uphill,


which doctors say is good for the heart


and good for the soul.


We walked by an abandoned marble mining plant


which I guess is our humble addition to the ruins of the ancient era.


We noticed signs of human activity of a very recent past


and also signs of what is called environmental restoration,


in this case, a football field in place of the once rocky mountain side.


On our way to the top we walked by beautiful wild flowers,


and two turtle lovebirds


but nothing could compare to the breathtaking view from the top


and this sense of achievement you get when you're active in a natural environment.
