Over six months has passed since my stroke and the use of my right leg has returned to normal. The only remaining effect is a very slight imbalance when I get tired or careless. I have been out snowshoeing two or three times this winter and have spent many hours cutting wood and stock piling it. I am very thankful that I have survived and recovered fully from this experience.
I was recently asked what I would like to do with the balance of my life and with little hesitation I replied that I would like to write.
Having said that I have to admit that my posts to this blog have diminished considerably. The main reason was probably because I had a very limited following and I believed the blog was not well received.
At this time I have seven followers. I have to accept the fact that while this may never be a popular blog that is no reason not to continue to keep posting. Since I enjoy writing that is reason enough to continue.
I am presently working on a new post I plan to call "Wilderness Rendezvous" which records a canoe trip into the wilderness north of Kenora, Ontario in May of 1968. The color photographs will make up for any of the shortcomings of the story.
