Time passes. Age blurs. What we once did effortlessly we now struggle to match. Maybe, we think, if we change our circumstances – go somewhere else – we can change things. So we do and still nothing comes as easy as it once did. So we get nostalgic, we get sentimental, maybe we even get bitter.
We moderate all comments on HeraldScotland on either a pre-moderated or post-moderated basis. If you're a relatively new user then your comments will be reviewed before publication and if we know you well then your comments will be subject to moderation only if other users or the moderators believe you've broken the rules, which are available here.
Moderation is undertaken full-time 9am-6pm on weekdays, and on a part-time basis outwith those hours. Please be patient if your posts are not approved instantly.
