Breathing space July

p&g is off to the orienteering to take a good look and see if it is possible to see the wood from the trees. Usually this involves wandering (and indeed wondering) around the forest getting unlost - thank you Murray Strain.

Orienteering is a good sport for poets as it is a combination of brain, body and place - you need to learn to map the landscape or city you are running in and take the best line; it helps you make decisions and discard the unnecessary. Oh and there are those lovely pauses for breath when I get to a control.

Inverness and environs in Scotland are being taken over by the Scottish 6 days and World Orienteering Championships. And there is some live coverage on BBC Alba.
