I recently had a message on a site i rarely use. It was someone who noticed in my profile that i used to go rock climbing a lot in the past. As she’d taken up climbing this year she asked if i wanted to get out. I warned her i hadn’t been out for a long time, but still had the experience and could give advice and encouragement. That was good enough for her, so i jumped at the chance. A phone call and a few emails later and off we went to one of the many crags in the wonderful Derbyshire Peak District..
Although climbing has been one of the great passions in my life, i’d gradually drifted away from it for various reasons. I feel that passion returning, and we’re planning more climbing trips.
That message looks like being one of life’s simple, but good surprises. Thanks Lucy.
