I’m a little late with my blog this week.

I’m a little late with my blog this week, and the internet is SLOW! I am a stranger, in a strange land—that’s my excuse.

Jan and I are in an RV park in Victoria, BC (Canada). The Fort Victoria RV Park to be specific. I’m calling it a “hidden gem”, although it is well know in Victoria, and one of the largest RV parks we’ve stayed in anywhere. The people are friendly (as in most RV parks), the views are spectacular, and the best part (in this park) is easy access to a huge system of walking trails.

This system of walking trails (technically biking/walking trails) is one of the longest, most integrated anywhere that I’ve seen. And as far as I know, it’s been here for years!

Jan and I met in Victoria, so it’s an easy “natural” when it comes to a place to visit or vacation. We both have friends (and family) here. Jan’s old friend Sue and her husband Mike are here. A lovely couple. My old school chum, Blake, and his wife Marla live here (an have for years!). My sister, Sue, is in Duncan–a pleasant hour’s drive from Victoria.

What a great place to vacation!

And of course, some of the most beautiful scenery and some of the loviest neighborhoods anywhere!

The clip is from our trip up the Malahat to Duncan yesterday.

This is a short post. Blake and I will go walking on the E & N Railway Trail this morning. What a life!

And to think that only a week ago (a tad more actually), Jan and I were in Federal Way.

At one time…

From time to time I get a great brainwave idea. Today it was to blog a day early. I’ve made it a point to blog every Wednesday. Here it is, Tuesday, and I’m already on it.

My blogs lately have been more the way I talk, than any special “written content” method that I may have used before. They’re a little more “stream of consciousness” and I’m a little less concerned about punctuation and run-on sentences than I might have been before. Part of that is the influence of someone I’ve been reading–Jon Kabat-Zinn. He runs on forever! However, he has a message that overlies all his writing, however imperfect that may be. And the message is worth overlooking some of the imperfection of his writing style.

At one time, I was interested in developing a meditation practice. That sort of fell by the wayside, as I worried myself silly about the direction my life was taking, had taken. Now, I feel like I’m able to set some of that aside, and just be (as my darling wife, Jan, loves to remind me).

I’m thinking that this week perhaps I’ll get done some of what I’d meant to do last week–get a hold of an old friend, perhaps play in my “office” some more, perhaps attend a Toastmasters meeting. These were all things I’d meant to do last week (or in weeks past) and just never got around tuit.

So here we go. This time is as good as any.

Thanks for reading, and if you like please comment below.
