CentralAB‍ , it’s gratifying to hear that your spirit is feeling somewhat restored. Keep up the good work!

I meditated yesterday morning, and finished digging over this garden. Afterward, the male cardinal flew down, bounced along the brickwork, and poked around in behind the petunias. Apparently Grandma was checking my work!

I hope "Grandma" gave you a good review! What a beautiful backyard you have to work in! I really miss those Cardinals! I have fond memories of them from when I was a kid in southern Ontario. Here is my latest production - well, one of them...

I was thinking about this topic today while I was out in the wilderness, and thought I should give a brief update re "What Next?" I have certainly made some excellent progress, and am starting to enjoy life again.

Today I went to a remote place, only accessible by 4WD, and the last km was a really challenging hike - for me anyways. I had to park my vehicle where the trail head ended, and the sign said "no motorized vehicles." It was a really difficult hike in for that last km. very steep, rugged terrain.

I went to a place called Ogre Canyon, and check out this rock I had to climb to get right into the canyon!

After I scaled over that rock using the rope you see in the pic, this is some of what I saw:

It was a really great sense of accomplishment  for me after all I have been through the last few years. I hope & pray that by my sharing this, others will be inspired to be their best, in loving memory of their lost loved ones. 😀
