Another month in Lockdown. Some of us saw a return to routine and work in this time, while for others, true ‘Lockdown Life’ may be ongoing, even with the ease of certain rules and restrictions.
My inspiration for this post was found in a recent and brief online conversation with Alex Roddie on social media. Alex raised the idea that getting outside is being marketed as the simple ‘be all and end all’ solution for a world of people’s personal problems (as I understood it).
This is not something I’d previously considered but immediately, I felt a response and realisation growing within me that has provided the impetus for this piece of writing.
Going in to November, there was a chance that I would be able to break the one-thousand mile mark before the arrival of 2018’s final month… With an amount of time on my hands and a long-weekend trip to Dartmoor due, this opportunity was very strong indeed.
Six-months of the year; gone and never to be reclaimed or repeated. Six-months to go. A half-year of opportunity.
