Heading to the Mountains to Heal the Soul!

I had no intentions of heading to play in the mountains this weekend.  It's cold!  The avalanche risk is high!  I needed a weekend at home to sort through things.  My mind has been full of clutter since the beginning of the new year and I didn't have the greatest start to the weekend! 

When I woke this morning, I felt I needed to get out of the frame of mind I was in.  Two things will do that for me, a run and becoming one with the mountains.  I checked the forecast and it was -20 here in Calgary and just one hour west it was -7 in Bragg Creek.  Bragg Creek isn't quite the mountains but you can see them clearly from there and you can almost reach out and touch them.  

I didn't make it to the mountains!  I was so close but yet so far.  Thirty minutes into my drive, I swerved to avoid vehicles that sped through a yield sign,  I hit ice and the next thing I new I was in the ditch on the other side of the highway facing the wrong way.  

  I need healing and so does my car!
I should have picked a run instead of becoming one with a mountain!

Thank you Justin!  It's nice to know in this gigantic, fast paced growing city, there are folks who care and are compassionate enough to take the time out of their life to lend a hand to someone in need!  I thought I knew what I should do and I think I tried to do what I was suppose to do and thought I was doing it but realized at that moment in time, I wasn't capable of looking after myself!  Thank you again for taking care and looking after what I couldn't!  


  1. Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry to hear about your accident today. I hope you're not too shaken up!

  2. Whoa, you have had a rough weekend! Hope things go better this week...

  3. Geeez!
    Two in a row!
    Take care,


I'm always curious to know what your comment might be!
