Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Tenacity II



There’s no stopping now
Damn the blisters, sunburn, bugs
Keep on walking, walk…

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #20: Tenacity

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  1. Owie! I often use “lovely” for making positive comments. This time, it just wouldn’t be right! 😉

    Heh, want or needt? The two types of tenacity.

    “As I started the hike, I realized I should’ve broken my new hiking boots in before taking them on their first hike. But, it was a perfect day, and they were the only boots I had, and I wouldn’t get a chance to climb this peak again for a long time. So, onward and upward.”


    “As we setup for our picnic at the peak, I took my boots off. That’s when I noticed the beginnings of what would likely become a big fat blister on the way down. Damn! And I left the moleskin in the truck back at the parking lot. The hike back down wasn’t going to be any fun.”

  3. ouch that looks painful and one would have to be the very definition of tenacious to keep going with that.

  4. Oooh. That must have given a opposite meaning to downhill climb.


  5. Yeah. Done both those.

    I remember the pain.

    But cherish the hike. : )


  6. A very painful lesson on wearing the wrong footwear for such a climb. A really hard way to break in a pair of boots!
