Crawley Preserve

1.76 miles   2 mph    for the first time since my accident, i picked a trail only because i’d never been on it before. that, plus it was short. but there was no concern about flatness or accessibility! i felt ecstatic to be on a new trail again for the first time in three […]

Trustom Pond NWR

yet another gorgeous day in rhode island! this is a beautiful refuge, although the trail system is small. small suited me just fine today, and my ankle felt pretty good the whole 2 1/4 miles. and since this is another federal property, the trails are all pretty flat and accessible. also, again, federal property = […]

Confessions of a Recovering Gardener

anyone who knows me has heard my extended rant on gardening. like how no matter what you think you’ve learned about 1) pest control; b) disease control; III) weather protection, critter avoidance, variety selection, blah, blah, blah; there’s always something else waiting in the wings to sabotage your efforts. always. and i’m just tired of […]
