This time last year I was walking in the Borders* with a son who was just about to leave for Jakarta.
This year I'm just about to go to Jakarta to visit him. Little bit of spring symmetry there.
* We walked a bit of St Cuthbert's Way because I was taking part in the project 26 Steps, which gave writers a particular route and asked for a photo, a poem and a map in response. You can see what came out of our walk here.
