Long distance trail hikers have the concept of a “zero day.” That's a day when they take it easy and hike zero miles.
I think you don't have to be a hiker to have a zero day. Saturday was my lovely wife and I's zero day. The week just caught up with us. We both woke up achy and sore with upset tummys. If we really had to function we could have pushed through it We didn't have to.
Friday we buried my cousin. As an only child my cousins were more like brothers and sisters to me. He was only 57, two years younger than me. He was a kind man and loved to joke around. For me the saddest thing was having to watch his mother. Parents should not have to bury their kids.
Well, for the rest of us life goes on. However, some days it just goes on a slower pace. Better to take the occasional zero day rather than wait until we get really sick and have to stop.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
