World Suicide Prevention Day
Many a person has been buried,
Many a hymn has been sung,
Many a eulogy been delivered,
and many a tear has risen from the heart,
to the cold hard floor
like one who has
For those who have gone
Who should have stayed
For whom the bell tolled
but who should have remained
For whom the song remains unsung
aching with every beat of these living hears.
Let’s talk about it. Don’t let the bell toll.

Catching up/Passing by
I also passed MB Willow at Buckby
Then, at Somerton Meadows, I came upon Epiphany. It has been YONKS since they were down this way and I have fond memories of their journey through Thrupp turning in to a couple of months of being stuck in the snow and ice several years ago.

Caravan lift bridge (215) pictures
The morning walk took Boots and I past the lift bridge this morning.
CRT were on site discussing what they would do to open navigation and were confident they could get it cleared by the end of the day tomorrow (or even today). This could be impressive but it seems CRT don’t manage the Oxford Canal but panic respond. It is no surprise the lift bridge collapsed – indeed, it is surprising it has stayed up so long. It is good fortune that no-one was hurt (canoeists and narrow boats often pass under the bridge)
Here are some pictures
