LONDON (AP) _ Sir Paul McCartney says that he's not looking for another woman, more than a year after the death of his wife Linda, but that he's open to the possibility of a new relationship.

``It might happen, I don't know, you know, I'm not really working at it. I just take things as they come,'' McCartney said in an interview broadcast Monday by Independent Television News.

``I think Linda would want me to be happy,'' he said. ``We'll just see what happens really.''

Linda McCartney died of cancer in April 1998. She had married the former Beatle in 1969.

McCartney said he decided not to throw himself into his music immediately after her death.

``I just did what came naturally and that involved a lot of crying, basically, and a lot of letting it out, wherever I was, sometimes a bit embarrassing,'' he said.

``It was a question of how long did she want me to grieve, because she was such an upbeat lady I think she would have said, 'Come on, get on with it now.'''

McCartney recently released a new album, ``Run Devil Run.''
