header_bot.jpgWhilst in Portugal I saw Paolo, my buddy who has run the local water sports centre for 18 years.

For 15 of those he has seen my canoeing endlessly around the lake. I’d always stop for a chat with him.

He  told me he’d been fired, but didn’t know why.

He’d heard of my accident in the summer, bursting into tears. Dani said.

He found it hard seeing me last week, I could tell.  He said ‘but you can still canoe , right ?’

I explained that without use of abdominals and back muscles, it wasn’t so straightforward ..

Mid conversation it again got too much for him, and he turned and walked away, shaking his head.
