Ouse Bridge

I walked along here in the early evening today. Funny how ones moods draw one to particular places. I kept ending up on bridges throughout my walk; crossing over them, looking upriver, looking downriver, and with this bridge - going for a look underneath it too.

Apologies for not blogging for so long, and thanks for all the comments on the post below! I am fine, and alive, but haven't been feeling like going round town with my camera for quite a while, and felt quite unable to blog. I am at a very definite crossing place in life at the moment, having left one life behind, I need to walk on into the new, but it has been more scary than I thought.

Easier, I guess, to stay stuck on the bridge where all options for advance or retreat are still open. Better get off it soon, and start walking in my chosen direction. It's a new year after all ...

PS. Last month I put 2 posts on here. The first said something like "Sorry I haven't blogged for so long. But I'm starting again from today." I published it, screamed, and deleted it. I then wrote another post which said something like. "Sorry I haven't blogged for so long. But I have decided not to blog York anymore. So that's it. Goodbye." I published it, screamed, and deleted it. As you can see, I have been more than a little confused. So was everyone else, I think, when those posts showed up in feeds but were gone from the blog.

Anyway ... if I haven't deleted this post by the end of the evening ... it would appear I that I am back!

Please Ruby - even if you decide at any point not to continue the blog - please DO NOT DELETE IT. The archives are lovely to look at and to avoid problems you can always block comments.

Hey Bury Boy, the Bury blog is dead I'm afraid and can't be got back. Some people (arguining councillors?) might be glad about that!!

Hi Ruby, great to see you back in the land of the living! If blogging can be called living? Missed you and your York musings. I hope 2009 is better for you. You will always have the support of us bloggers. Don't forget that.
