This, my friends, is not curated reality. As I walk along the twists and turns, I sometimes wonder whether I am lost or have I just found myself? Almost as if it has read my thoughts, a fern waves out and encourages me onwards.

It was at Second Chance, Selim Hill, on one of our nightly walks, that these miraculous creatures, the fireflies, visited us and re-introduced themselves to us. It was almost as if an unforgotten memory had floated to the surface.

Believe me when I say you can almost touch it and climb the steps upwards if you think your work on Earth is over.
