On a day that marks the hundredth year anniversary since the end of World War one its is important to note the sacrifice made by so many. With the pace of modern day life being so fast, taking a step back and appreciating what you have, no matter how little is brought to our attention today.
Daily life and “the day job” have meant that i have spent less time in the hills this year as usual. Hence less blogs. Apologies folks. I’ve still been walking and running at least four times a week but the space and clarity which the outdoors brings mentally, the catharsis, has been slightly neglected.
So with the burnt colours of Peak District national park in glorious view and the sky bruised and ready to burst i headed up on a usual run to the edge of Bleaklow in the northern section of the Peak District national park, known as the Dark Peak.
The colours this time of year of the leaves of the trees is wonderful. Deep red, orange, greens and browns all blend together like a Orla Kiely design.
Why not head out with family and friends and enjoy the colours of this season. It may mean that you get a little muddy or wet but the sense of freedom is well worth the effort you make. Go and enjoy and appreciate your cosy warm home that evening.
