With the new year comming along, i'd been thinking what do we desire in life??
I am at heart a angler, although i dont go as much as i used too, i still try and make a point of going, not just too fill in blank time, but too say too myself i still can, and i can achieve complicated rigs and knotts to battle this thing on my own terms,before my battery of energy runs out.
Whilst i'm sat there set up and ready for a fish too come along i like too observe my surrounding nature and what passes by in my little vista of the world, if i'm quick enough i'll try too take a photo or two, wobbley hands and tremor allowing lol.
I live by the sea, just a mile from it, our village overlooks the sea from a hill, over farmed marshland and in the distance the beach and beyond the sea, it is nice, quiet, and unspolit winter or summer, And all autumn it has been my goal in life too reach and stand apon it, but often i've got too the top of the hill and that's it, i dare not try too walk further, i may run out of energy at the bottom of the hill and unable too get back up it again.
And then one day after lunch before christmas, i thought dammit, i'll give it a try i have 4 hours till darkness, i set off with warm clothing, a phone and a torch lol, what used too take me 10 mins took me nrly 2 hr's, but i made it too the shore line, it was high tide and the sea was calm, i looked back in the opposite direction, and thought i'd done what my heart desire's too do today at least, i arrived home in darkness.
The next day i paid for it though, i awoke middle of the afternoon and hobbled about upstairs only for that day, but it was worth it.
So, for you, what do you desire too do??, beyond new yr's resolutions??.
