We’re so saddened by the tragic loss of Robin Williams to suicide. Depression doesn't discriminate against how and why it hits, the consequences can be devastating. Depression, can strike anyone at any time.
Today I walked out into my front garden and picked some of the fresh peas that were growing there. It’s not a unique event; gardeners up and down the country are doing exactly the same thing at this time of year. For me, however, it was a moment brimming with pride. Sat on the rather ad-hoc path I’d made out of mismatched flagstones and bricks, I ate most of the peas straight from their pods and recalled what my garden had looked like at the start of the year.
