‘One day, while calmly mowing his cloud, the prince of Cloud City was accosted. The arch-rival of his kingdom GooGooGaga, a terrifying creature, half man, half baby, approached from behind. With a mighty shove, the prince was thrown from his cloud and fell down to Earth. Landing in a swimming pool in Fresno, California, he […]

Why Rest is my Current Business Goal

This month’s Self-Boss Networking Walk explored the importance of rest and wellbeing.  When we work for ourselves we are our business.  That is, without us there is no business.  Consequently attending to our own wellbeing becomes as fundamental as any other business process. I believe very strongly that work and wellbeing are not opposing forces.  … Why Rest is my Current Business GoalRead More »

Wood Mountain Walk, Afterthoughts

I’m exhausted today, of course, and my legs don’t feel like cooperating when I ask them to climb stairs or walk across the room. That’s to be expected. I should’ve taken two days to finish the last 40 kilometres of my walk. But I didn’t. I decided to leave everything on the road and push […]

Wood Mountain Walk, Day Nine

Last night, my hosts warned me hat there’s very little between Limerick and Wood Mountain , so I’m carrying extra water, which means my pack is heavier than ever. But my feet don’t hurt and I seem to have recovered my stride. After three hours of walking–for once, I didn’t sleep late, and I was […]

Wood Mountain Walk, Day Eight

I woke up late this morning, feeling drained of energy despite my day off. I’ve been walking with leaden legs for two hours and I’m about halfway to Limerick. Highway 13 has a wide, flat paved shoulder and a gravel verge beside it that looks as if it’d be good for walking, but because it […]

Rick Pearson talking walking

Often uncelebrated and rarely visited, the summits of each of the London boroughs can be somewhat of a let down, by the time you reach them.  However, in the company of Rick Pearson, even the climb to the highest point in London, becomes an enjoyable adventure.  Andrew Stuck accompanies him to  Westerham Heights, Bromley’s highest […]

Wood Mountain Walk, Day Seven

All I’ve done in Assiniboia today is eat and sleep. And laundry. That’s what rest days are for. It’s hot again today and I’m glad I’m not out on the highway. Tomorrow will be a shorter day, just 20 kilometres to Limerick. Sunday is supposed to be cooler, so I might try to finish the […]

Wood Mountain Walk, Day Six

I slept late this morning and got up stiff and sore and tired. There was coffee in the cupboard so I made a pot. That helped. And for once I enjoyed Ryvita and peanut butter, so I had a decent breakfast. On my way out of town, an old fellow I’d met at lunch yesterday […]
