Nice article, the second to last paragraph is particularly poignant. I used to see those activities and commitments as a chore, but I relish my 3 hour trip to the doctor every month now, even if I have to sit in peak hour traffic. It's a change of scenery, which is in some respects quite sad when you think about it. Now, I'm trying to hike more and do more in the garden.
I wish you the best moving forward!
