I don’t know who I am

Someone asked me what my favourite colour was the other day. My first reaction was to respond with pink. But then I wondered if it was still pink. The more I thought about it, the more I realised that I don't know who I am. My Mum, if she was still with us, would tell [...]

I loved you in every language

I've always been so fascinated by how much love humans can have for one another. How beautifully people say that they miss someone. How intoxicating it is to look at someone and want them to be yours. We all say we miss someone else. We all say we love someone else. The French say "Tu me [...]
