We’ve been married for one week.

We've viewed each other as husband and wife ever since deciding to travel together so the significance we felt after the formal ceremony came as something of a surprise to both of us. As the day approached I realised I was excited as muc...

Today is a strange day. Two pieces of bad news hitting within minutes of each other have shaken me. Two totally unrelated people on different continents, linked for a moment by me receiving the news that neither is here any longer. Death is unique is such a deeply stra...

We ride the single track road, slightly raised in the midst of rolling arable fields for as far as the eye can see, all lilting in the breeze against the grey, sky blurred with mist. It’s the first time my heart has lifted all day, the first time I get hold of who I am...
