When we were in school we would often use the gate like the one above that leads to the black path and then to the top shops or home. I took this on the way to work and you can see the build up of soil proving that its been unused for many years. Why I'm writing this or expecting anybody to care is not important. What is however, is that I noticed the same things where we all used to play. Children are inside a lot more on the PC or games, and less on bikes and making dens. Maybe the real reason I'm writing this is really to myself..
'Yes, as I'm getting older things seem further behind but my memories are fresh and nostalgic, and that's what makes me grateful for the times I had..and to come.'
