  • A park on a sunny day. In a cafe, situated in a sweet little village, while consuming a cream tea. On a train, or in a car, or on a plane on a long journey. I love to feel part of two worlds at a time. It's a secret only you and the author share, while everyone else is merely looking on, clueless. ;-)
