We have our pub back!

We have something of an ulterior motive in following closely the progress of the re-opening of our village pub: it's 58 steps from our front door! Here is an album of a few photos taken over recent times. Click on the image below to view the full album.

it is what it is

it is nonsense, says reason

it is what it is, says love

it is unhappiness, says reflection

it is nothing but pain, says fear

it is hopeless, says insight

it is what it is, says love

it is ridiculous, says pride

it is frivolous, says caution

it is impossible, says experience

it is what it is, says love

Erich Fried
