I Miss it

  Earlier this year my life took a fundamental change. For medical reasons I was, and still am unable to get outside. Get to the places I love. While I can still drive, I cannot walk any distance so the ease of popping off along the river just to escape and revel in the natural world has ceased. I have written before about taking stuff for granted and now it appears that is exactly what I was doing. Taking stuff for granted...

A Clifftop, There is nothing quite like it

A Clifftop Walk A coastal clifftop path, on one side there are the rolling North York Moors with the beauty and bleakness that comes along with them. On the other the North Sea.

The wind is the sort of clean wind that blows through you and takes away the dirt and cares of the world. The gulls and other sea birds glide effortlessly,...
