Today was a good day. Not only was it ridiculously sunny, but finished copies of All the Good Things arrived. I carried them back from the post office with a big silly grin on my face which, even after I’d got home & hung out the washing, refused to go away. I guess that’s what happens when you achieve what you never believed you’d achieve; what for the longest time felt impossible.
If there’s something you want to do, don’t think about doing it. Do it. Do it because you love it. Because you don’t feel properly alive if you don’t. Keep doing it. You never know.
