Things are Not as Far Away

19 Sep 2008

We're in Oxford now. This is our 11th visit to our flat, North Light. Before, it has seemed like a mild effort to walk uptown, and it took at least a week to get used to four stories of steps up to the flat (especially when carrying luggage or groceries!) But for some reason, even though I'm seven years older than I was when I first visited here, things don't seem so far away. The center of town is just a stroll and although I still wish our flat was one story lower, I can make it up 56 steps with only one pause. By the end of the week, I'll be able to make it all the way without stopping.

Am I in better shape physically or is it less of an effort psychologically since it's now familiar?
