I have not had the inclination to write anything on here for quite a while. As life tumbles down around me, I just seem to sit and stare at it, unable to react or even act to stop the descent into chaos. Writing my blog would be a major major effort that I just could not have faced. Pathetic? Probably but then that is how it sometimes takes me. Post lies unopened in drawers, e-mails go unanswered and telephone calls are not returned. I cut myself off from my friends and like a small communist state enter a period of isolation and solitude. I have really struggled to make it to the Goyt, even though the Curlews are now back and nesting. Poor Lilly has to make do with walks down our local dale, from me, though Mrs BW has taken her up Shining Tor on a fairly regular basis. Is the fog lifting, can I see the path ahead now after months of stumbling around blindly in the mist and dark? We shall see. Anyway hope you are all well, have a good Easter break and lets hope spring is soon on its way.
