    The Window

    I Think I Had One Once

    It wasn't with someone, it was just one moment when I could feel happiness swell inside me till it felt like my chest would burst. When I think back on it, it was probably teenage hormones. I was 14 and sitting in English class where we were trying to experience the joys of Silas...

    Last Week

    We were lying in bed, in each others arms, in a thatch rondawel out in the African bush, fire cracking and casting a magical light, bounding off the stone walls, talking about our plans for the future, things that happened in the past, and at that very moment I thought 'this must...
