Thank you for writing so beautifully about two points I have difficulty expressing. The grief – and that is the right word – over the loss of our beloved physical activities and the search for replacements. I have difficulty even watching a movie or video set in the mountains (Lake Tahoe was my favorite hiking spot.) I have discovered photography is particularly effective at focusing on people,plants,animals OUTSIDE OF MYSELF AND MY ILLNESS. I will kept this posting with me as a guide.
