The way we act now in times of personal doubt and individual pain has changed, dramatically and with much noise, perhaps even ceremony, no longer are we dictated to that we must grieve in a certain way, that we must take it on the chin all that happens to us; to sit in silence and slowly drift into the greyness that claims our own lives without our consent.

People, like places, can hold their secrets for as long as possible, the strange ways in which a village ticks can also manifest itself in the way that a person’s mind can become; closed off, unable to deal with a certain moment in the past to the point where it just no longer acknowledges the Time ever existed, till it becomes hearsay, rumour, dismissed gossip in the next generation coming through.
