I had a moment of bliss the other day
You know, when you’re a teenager and you think of your life as an adult, you have certain dreams and expectations. I’d dream away of my own little place, bookshelves lined with poetry, a piano, candles, beautiful bedlinen, clothes of my own choosing, picture frames, perhaps a beautiful horse in the stables just outside .. the whole kit and caboodle of having things exactly your own way. Being Independent.
In reality, such a life is often not as expected and you certainly don’t feel as hugely self-sufficient and blissful all the time.
But a couple of days ago I felt it, really felt exactly as I thought I would all those years ago. Granted, it was just 20 minutes or so, but it was absolutely wonderful.
So I made pictures. It was the only thing I could think of to do.
