Has it helped? Well I guess the answer I have to give you is that I think so. My body is certainly now knackered and aches after clocking up some miles in the hills and the solitude allowed my damaged mind to rest for a while. The Bear certainly appreciated it and my appetite has been wetted for more. Time will tell if my mind will heal a little and let me continue upon this journey. I'll tell you what, I'll keep you posted.
