Curtailment


‘I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.’

John Burroughs


I completely identify with the quote above. In fact, bizarrely, given that I have a little more time at the moment by virtue of the fact that I’m not having to commute, I’m finding it even more difficult to fit everything in.

Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise that two of the activities referred to in the quote have been curtailed. Daily walks are only supposed to last ‘up to an hour’ and the idea of meeting up with friends to socialise has been more-or-less completely knocked on the head.

Limiting a walk to an hour or less is not easy when I’m used to it being a more open-ended experience, but perhaps a new appreciation of the sights on my doorstep will add a silver lining to the Cumulonimbus.
