BEACHY HEAD -In memory of the Putticks.

Oh glorious and beautiful land and seascape that makes us breathless in wonder yet chills us with its capacity to swallow us in our grief and despair.

The suffering of some knows no bounds, making this world a viscious and life denying place and it may be from that state of wretchedness that the decision to jump was taken.

However, it may have been a more determined though regrettable choice. Three family members, bound together in love who cannot conceive of life without each other and refusing to be swallowed, find in this awesome setting a doorway through which they can take the ultimate journey beyond our shores in the hope of arriving safely in the promised land.

I believe they have.
