A day in the life

By Shelling


I had a much better day today, I felt a bit productive, doing nice things for myself.

The main is from my jogging run, that in it self was nothing out of the ordinary, but I thought the picture was nice with all the lines and the birds in the background swimming away because they could hear me coming. Probably it was the gasping that gave me away. Before the jog I did my yoga with Adriene, I missed the last two days and it felt good to be back on track.

The extra is a tourist map over my island from 1960 that was given to me by a friend who found it in a shop selling old books and maps. It's got markings made by someone visiting the island back then, special places that they planned to see or had just visited, marking them to remember the special places during the holiday trip. I'm planning to do the same tour, following their markings sometime, trying to learn more about the people once owning the map. All the railroads that were in use on the island are  still in the map, the trains stopped going in 1961 and after that the tracks were removed, but it's so interesting to see where they actually were because there are still lots of evidence from the train era on the island, part of its industrial era. When I was given the map it was worn and torned but with the advice and aid from my good friend "HarlingDarling", a keen blipper, I was able to repair it so I can dare to have it hanging on a wall as a piece of art.
