Now that the last day of 2008 is here, I feel weird. Not blue exactly, more a disappointment; not in the year but in myself. I'm not sure why I carried on doing something I wasn't really suited to, nor why I let it get to me.
The photo is of a place that really helped me to understand what was happening, and also gave me the time and space to work out the solution. I went here on my own, on a number of trips up and down the road; sitting there with my coffee and cake was often what got me through.
But now things feel very different; seeds are sown both literally and metaphorically. What more could you ask from a new start to the year? A lovely, lovely 2009 to everyone.
