Running is currently out of the question, which is hard to take. It's what I enjoy most, the only thing I'm any good at. It gives me a time from the world, from Brexit, a time to float along, a free spirit, to forget my age, escape reality, to run for sheer enjoyment with no thought of time nor distance or training schedules.
To 'just do it'.

An inspirational C. S. Lewis quote says "You are never too old to set a new goal or dream a new dream" and I wondered just how old he was when he said it? Well, he died when he was 64 so I don't know whether he'd still say that if he'd lived to 87?
Which just happens to be my age.
I still have dreams, especially after a glass or two of wine, but at my time of life it's increasingly unlikely they'll become reality. Nevertheless, I remain optimistic, always believing that fate, or God, still has something good in store for me, but what it can possibly be will remain a mystery until it happens.
I like surprises....
