Yesterday, in the room I used to call my world in my parents house I found a box. It was a box I packed away on the eve of my graduation from university all those years ago and had not touched it since. In it was nothing but photographs; arty shots I took long before … Continue reading A Box of Photographs
This quote has been floating around my head for the last month and since I have been tragically bad at writing a blog post lately I thought I would discuss the idea of chapters in one’s life and the stories we create. “I’ll be a story in your head.
