Where are the Yorkshire clouds?

That faint red sun pillar is a bit like an X marks the spot.

I had been thinking about mountains today. Thinking is bad for me really. I should leave that to others better qualified than me. I should stick to reading the instructions 😂😂😂. But I was thinking and it was me and TIME again. Years ago I set myself a goal of climbing or walking up every Scottish Munro (282), every Lakeland Fell (214), every Yorkshire large hill (38) and every Welsh mountain 3000ft mountain (15). For years I made decent progress. Maybe 20 to 30 a year. Then life happened. It’s been about 10 in the last decade and zero since 2015.


So today I was trying to visualise restarting the project. Which mountains where nearest. How to pull off some summits. Much creative thinking was required. Just maybe the Yorkshire ones would be a start. Logistically difficult given life. Impossible currently but just maybe one day….

There is always HOPE. And getting back to that faint sun pillar and its significance. It marks the exact direction I need to head off in to turn that Hope into REALITY.

Hopes great but reality is better.

  1. I have hopes to hike so many places. I dream of climbing more mountains. Even after great falls. With great intent, training, and hope, I pray for it to become reality! With hope and belief I can still muster my imagination!

  2. I noticed the sun pillar right away. I seem to see so many more natural phenomena these days and I think (something I try not to do too much of either) surely these things always happened, so how come I never noticed before? I know we become more aware as we push through life and living in the stix is very different to suburbia, still. Maybe it’s just I am looking for signs. Anyway….you have a tremendous record of achievement that you can be proud of and I’m sure you can restart but don’t judge yourself based on what you were able to accomplish when life was less complicated.

  3. I’ve noticed that the sky has been exceptionally beautiful since pandemic started…
    I’ve thought about it a lot, and I still don’t know if I’m just noticing more, or if Mother Nature is giving us something beautiful to help get us through this difficult time.🤷🏼‍♀️

    Hope is what we hang on to until we make reality happen. Hope doesn’t go bad, or expire… Hope, unlike these trying times, is forever.

    Keep watching that gorgeous sky, Gary Kermit Superdad. And keep hoping!💌💌💌💌
