Walk On

Photo by Alexander Schimmeck on Unsplash
I walked miles in these boots.
They were a gift from my beloved, the last he ever gave me.
These boots and I traveled the world, saw sights you wouldn’t believe, crossed continents and time zones, flew in the skies, sailed on the seas, climbed mountains, explored caves.
Not a single blister, sore or bunion, these boots caressed and adored my feet with each loving step.
Now ten years on,  I am unable to walk anywhere, but I have my memories.
The boots share pride of place on the patio outside my bedroom and burst forth with their own life. I just provided the soil from my travels….. Mother Nature did the rest.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
