Today is my best friend's birthday. She is a whopping twenty one years old, and I've known her for eleven of them, since we were young and naive, chasing ice cream vans and making up songs, having sleep-overs and writing messages on ceilings with a torch, running around Europe on school trips and summer holidays, and wondering what life held for us; I hope it holds only wonderful things for you, DL, because that's all you deserve.

In Flight Of Night

"The human mind cannot bear very much blankness - where we do not know, we invent and what we invent reflects our fears of what we do not know..."
- Purkiss, 2001

It has been a year to the day that I first laid eyes on the boy I was going to fall in love with.
He makes me feel like flying.

The summer has brough the sunshine back, and everything's getting brighter. Light on water and other beautiful things.

Lit Lunacy

When seeking illumination, we look to the moon and the stars. We peer into blackness and find bright faces. We ask our questions into the dark night sky because it in itself is a question. The mystery that the moon sits amongst, the furthest reaches of time and space. You can't stare the sun in the eye.

I'd forgotten how this time of year feels.
