My spouse and I had this sport at any time when I’d go mountaineering or backpacking. I’d take a stuffed animal, one of many 90 or so we owned, pose them on my hikes, and take photos of them to share along with her. My spouse isn’t a hiker however she is aware of it’s one thing I like and the stuffed animals gave us a technique to keep related throughout my absences.
I’ve hundreds of images of our stuffed animals from my journeys on Vermont’s Lengthy Path, the Appalachian Path, The TGO (Nice Out of doors Problem) and The Cape Wrath Path in Scotland, and a gazillion on the summits within the White Mountain Nationwide Forest. She at all times received a chuckle out of seeing them and listening to tales of their adventures with me.
However the pleasure of our companionship might quickly come crashing to an finish. Whereas we have now grown aside in recent times, we nonetheless shared a deep friendship for each other, respect, and admiration. She is preventing for her life as I write this and I worry the worst. The world was a greater place along with her. I can not think about what will probably be like if she leaves.
