Congregate is the prompt for Sunday. I suppose that is an appropriate word for Sunday!
Just Jot It January is by Linda Hill (with help from her friends). You can jot something down for the prompt anywhere, any time, just post it on your blog before the end of the month (so it seems). You can read the full instructions here.
Congregate – Jan 28th
For about twenty years I used to congregate in a forest on Sunday mornings. I made many friends, several of whom I still have, although some have failed to make it to this day. I stopped for various reasons, then started again about ten years ago, although not with the same regularity.
I’m talking about orienteering, the sport where you make your way around a course, checking in at various points as marked on the map. It’s a time trial. Most winning times are around an hour. My finish time for 5km was more like ninety to a hundred minutes, but that’s a lot of the point: you do it at your own speed. The navigation is the challenge, and slow and steady often beats fast and inaccurate.
I’m looking forward to getting back to orienteering when the weather improves, and I feel able to walk about 2 km in safety.
After all, what better place to congregate on a Sunday morning, than a beautiful natural environment?
