Hikes – and the wonders of love


Well yes, I missed posting yesterday – and that’s very rare for me. I do my best to post every single day – that’s my commitment. But I have an excuse – a reason if you will.

His name is Simon and it’s all his fault.

So there.

But more on that later.

First, Friday morning, my friends and I had a super hike on the yellow/pink/blue trails on Maple Mountain. We talked, we laughed – we especially (as I remember) chatted about bicycles and how you never forget to ride them. As I discovered, later that day, this is true. Although no one could have prepared me for the fact that since the last time I rode one, they had made a much better model with far more speeds. (ahem)

And so – here are some photos from Maple Mountain:

And here is one of the bay where Simon’s home is anchored.


-And that brings me to the second part of the day: music (listening to Simon play is as close to awesome as it gets! I could listen to him for days at a time – yes, I know – I am gushing).

Then we had a delightful dinner.

Then we watched one of our favourite movies of all time: As Good As it Gets.” It seems that every time I watch this movie, it strikes me as more perfect. The lines are amazing – the acting superb – the story, pitch perfect! And of course we laughed madly and cuddled together on the big chair while the dogs sorted themselves out.

Then we started kissing.

And then we managed about 3 – 4 hours of sleep if that.

And all I can say is that those were a wasted 3 or 4 hours!

I think we were both in doubt about hiking in the morning. But we did – Mount Baldy (photos below) and I think we were both glad we did. Moving our bodies in nature – what can be better?

So – the best part of all this? The continuing, evolving discovery of this love that is filled with absolute trust, caring, compassion and acceptance.

I have never experienced anything like it. To me, it is a complete miracle that we found each other at this perfect and synergistic time in our lives. One of the greatest gifts I have ever received is this gift from Simon: accepting and cherishing my heart and all the love I can give him (and that’s a lot of love).

My gratitude is boundless.P1070378_Fotor P1070389_Fotor
