28 Sep 2005: Bright On

A picture

Beachy Head

Why suicidal people gravitate to a famous spot for suicide, I don't know. But as we turned up to enjoy the glorious view, the coastguard were retrieving the body of someone who had decided life was not something they needed to put up with any more.

After this, Aki kept prancing around the edge of the cliff, entranced with the drop and the deep blue sea. Maybe she was safe, but it wasn't safe for me as I suffered 7 heart attacks watching her take great big confident strides along the ridge.
