Thursday 14 February 2013


The dusk fell quickly tonight. Whilst walking back from the holiday apartment N’s parents have been renting this week, I found myself gazing up at the heavens. Tonight, the romance of a night-time stroll on Valentine’s day passed over my head. Having been wiped out by a virus all week, my thoughts were turned to home…and all my loved ones over there. Odd to think that only a month ago, I was looking up at that very same bejewelled sky with my parents.

As often happens when star gazing, I was overcome by the infinite size of that wide expanse of sky. It left me feeling tiny and powerless…cut off from those whom I love the most across the Channel.
