Journal – The First Weeks


Corvi’s –  on expired 35 mm film

Chips and pickled onions at Corvi’s.

Walking on Brick Lane, feeling so lost in myself.

Shelling monkey nuts.

Back to routine with 5.30 starts.

Escaping momentarily in three books – Sally Rooneys Conversations With Friends, If God Was a Rabbit by Sarah Winman, Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng.

Making lists of books I want to read.

Making lists of things I am grateful for.

The tilt of the light, shifting and stretching …….just that little bit.

Issues 9 and 10 of Violet lifting my creative slump.

Living a childhood dream of being a Pink Lady for one night (Rizzo, obviously), with the best group of women –  my Magnificent 7.

Feeling frustrated at the ending of If Beale Street could talk, but happy that I watched it at my favourite cinema.

Listening to Joy Crookes on repeat.

Saying goodbye.  Again.  The hardest.
