Thought for the day . . .
It has thawed here, praise be. Yesterday was so much warmer and now all but the most stubborn ice has melted. The ponds are looking very milky but the ice is slowly darkening at the edges and the birds can drink more readily again.
In last week's Telegraph, I came across this wonderfully inspiring piece of text, which is one that adventurer and explorer Ben Fogle lives by:
To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To believe is to risk despair.
To try is to risk failure.
The people who risk nothing, do nothing.
Only a person who risks is truly free.
I will leave you with that thought . . .
