Our hope for the future is that better times will return and for this reason we have chosen to illustrate it in the form of a landscape scene of the rising sun. We have spent many days….weeks…….months or even years waiting for each tomorrow to be a better day. We had many false impressions that we were, indeed, on the road to a better tomorrow only for our hopes to be dashed within hours. That feeling of failure deepens with each false hope. It takes you to a place where you can only see the darkness of night – the dark proving ever more powerful.

I am glad to say that over the last three years things have improved slowly in our lives. Although yet to see the full power of the ‘sun’, we do see some of its light and that is encouraging for us all. The withdrawal journey is a very difficult one and having that glimmer of hope, or sunlight, makes the world of difference when struggling to cope . Knowing that the sun will rise again – that life will improve – that there WILL be a better tomorrow soon, helps to carry us through the very worst days that withdrawal reactions bring.

There will be more information at a later date about the image shown here. Sufficient for today is to tell you that it is a piece of textile art which features a Welsh language phrase which translates as ‘ Again, the sun will rise on the hillside’.

  1. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  2. Greetings I am so excited I found your weblog, I
    really found you by mistake, while I was browsing on Yahoo for something else, Nonetheless I am here now
    and would just like to say kudos for a remarkable post and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design),
    I don’t have time to read it all at the minute but I have saved
    it and also included your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will
    be back to read a great deal more, Please do keep up the
    great work.

  3. “Having read this I thought it was very enlightening. I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this article together. I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!”

  4. Just want to say your article is as astonishing. The clarity to your publish is just spectacular and i can suppose you are knowledgeable in this subject. Fine together with your permission allow me to take hold of your RSS feed to stay up to date with approaching post. Thanks a million and please keep up the rewarding work.

    1. Sorry not that tech savvy! There are many plugins available on WordPress but most are quite expensive. All comments to ours are screened and very many gathered by Honey Pot ( counted as spam) which we then sift through and keep the ‘real’ ones. As for hackers I’m not too sure. Hope you keep following ours.

  5. After looking at many of the blog articles in your site, I seriously appreciate your means of writing a blog. I bookmarked it to my bookmark site list and will also be checking back in the near future. Check out my website too and tell me your opinion.

  6. Hello there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I really do agree with every one of the ideas you may have offered to your post. They’re very convincing and definately will definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for novices. May you please lengthen them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for your post.

  8. Hi there every one, here every person is sharing such knowledge,
    thus it’s nice to read this website, and I used to pay a
    visit this weblog everyday.

  9. Good way of explaining, and nice piece of writing to take data on the topic of
    my presentation subject, which i am going to convey in school.

  10. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Appreciate it!

  11. This is the right blog for anyone who hopes to understand this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a subject that has been written about for a long time. Great stuff, just great!
