am I on track to reach the goal? 2092 miles!!

It’s a goal that was set to put a little excitement in the mix for me.

Mom and I keep each other safe and have now for over 2 and 1/2 years. I walk when it works and have learned to be spontaneous.

The goal is to be on foot at least 2092 miles, according to the Charity Miles application, between January 1 and December 31st 2018.

As of last night the number is 1,830, with 262 more needed.

The Charity Miles application tracks my miles and advertisers donate money to the Special Olympics for each mile walked.

The walking will hopefully help me remain fit.

where did it go, the time

This is about how much time I have not spent living in the moment.

Yesterday I was 10 years old

Today, I’m 68

Where did it go

Was I there

It was my choice

we gotta clean the brain out ~ Alzheimer’s #endalz

From my point of view, something is going on with the job of keeping our brain clean. It’s not getting done thorough enough, and lots of stuff could be the guilty party. Remember, this old guy is a high school graduate, but it makes sense.

  • what could be the biggest reason?
  • what could be the second biggest cause
  • is any of this, lack of cleaning, avoidable?
  • no answers here, but maybe some good questions

I was thinking about mom taking the garbage out every night, just before bedtime. All of a sudden, some of it is piling up in the house. Why? How many reasons could there be? A lot huh? In the brain, maybe the garbage starts sticking together and it’s hard to get from one room to another.

this type stuff inspires me sometimes

we are explorers

every day we wake up, a hundred different things could happen. We never know for sure, but we try to anticipate, and may set strategies for the possibilities, but in the end, it may just come down to dealing with life as it is put in front of us.

taking time off from social media

Good morning. My circle of friends is reducing in size almost every week, but at 68 years old, that is not uncommon.The sand in my hourglass will run out at some point, as it will for all of us.Two friends from my past left yesterday and this feels like a good time to be quiet for a bit, think about stuff, continue doing what’s most important, and come back to social media later. Life is good and I am grateful for every day, and I am thankful for the people in it. See you, metaphorically speaking, soon.

over 18,800 miles on foot so far

In 2013, Across the Land, Ran, Jogged and Walked over 4000 miles to raise awareness and/or money for charities. Shortly after, a bold statement was released saying Across the Land would continue on and stop, after 10,000 miles. Well, the miles have added up. Across the Land has raised money and/or awareness, on foot, for approximately 18,800 miles. “To Keep Going, Keep Going!”
