I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. The past, even the good past, can’t stay with us. Memories can, as you say, like familiar smells in fabric. But what’s ahead that’s real is the future, likable or not. The future, especially after a great journey or change, is ominous.

    You make this sound wistful, risky, and foreboding. It’s wonderfully crafted especially with metaphor: a tear in fabric, a crack in the stone, dark mesas.

    1. Thank you. It’s always risky leaving home and when it’s changing culture and continent it’s frightening too. It must appear very difficult to people who are forced out of their homes and tolerated begrudgingly where they seek asylum.
