  • It's funny how drastic changes in your life can bring about such clarity. Moving house. Upon staring at the blank canvas of my empty room all the colours and the emotions, that seemed to belong solely to that place, were suddenly cut free. They now live within me; they are no longer trapped within those four walls.
    A darkness remained with me during the long journey that followed; I felt that I had left something behind, a piece of myself. But now, the comfort of summer sun is slowly reminding me of the beauty and happiness that will stay with me no matter where I find myself.
