Which we all know is exactly what life does in the most spectacular, ridiculous, heart-breaking or just plain annoying ways. Following on from ourContinue reading “Chance”

Baby bird

How old were you when you found your wings ? When did you first feel in control of your choices? Or grounded enough to let go of your fear? Whose fear was it anyway ? Did you climb a mountain in a sweltering landscape and peek at your new perspective through the gap in the clouds?Continue reading “Baby bird”
