Isn’t this gorgeous? This isn’t one of my photos, in fact it was taken by my besty friend Sue Quinn last week when she visited Devon. These are wild ponies on the moors. Click here to watch Sue’s beautiful little video of the ponies.
Sometimes it is our friends who are the only glue that holds the world together. When things get tough they leap in there and fight the dragons for you as best they can. The dragon chomping at their own tail doesn’t hold them back and they throw themselves carelessly at your dragon, waving their arms and screaming every bad word they know.
Sometimes it is their sheer determination to fight for you that pulls you from the edge.
Sometimes you forget to say Thank You for their unstinting devotion and help.
Sometimes Thank You just isn’t enough.
PS If you are in UK and lilstening to the radio today tune in to BBC Radio Scotland at about 10.45am, I’m on with Fred McAulay chatting about Weedy Ways. Will tell all tomorrow.
