This weekend was full of sunshine; my little sister came to visit, we strolled in our t -shirts and remembered what summer was like, we climbed a spiral staircase to the top of a tower, we hatched plans for a new adventure, we bought new books and we ate good food.
“For the first time in my life I was out of the sight of humans. For the first time in my life I was alone in a world whose behaviour I could neither predict nor fathom: a world of birds that squealed, of plants that stank, of insects that sprang about without warning. I was lost and I did not expect to be found again. I put my head back and howled, and the sun hit me smartly on the face, like a bully.”
