And there she was this woman and girl, child and grandmother, virgin and slut, believer and needer, pilgrim and analyst, leader and loser, a heterosexual lesbian so confused about where she was going or what she was doing, forgetting her own name while she flicked through the society magazines of celebrities, which usually she would have bought but now she was too old to steal and having just turned down a job to the only company she send her CV to and wanted to work for could not justify buying. Not actually realizing that a bigger celebrity than all the ones in the magazines was waiting for her in the airport at the other end of the plane, she nearly missed forgetting who she was until her name was being announced on the tannoy for final call in Heathrow. And, as she ran to the plane she did not quite realize that this departure was about to change her life and the person she believed she was forever. So as she smiled realizing her seat was 2B and most of the plane wouldn’t know it was her who had held it up she buckled up and prepared for take-off and flew far away from everyone she knew, everything she thought she knew and into the unknown


They say a broken clock tells the right time twice a day, actually if we think about it, it tells the right time in around about way several times a day all over the world.

Time is the only commodity with any real value, we spend time, we waste time and we invest time.

More precious than any monetary value our time in timeless and our time is timed.

The cause of death is birth and from the moment we are born our time is counted. Why then if we have a lot of time on our hands are we not considered rich?

I read a Chinese proverb once which said: If we are wasting time and enjoying ourselves we are not wasting time.

Therefore right now at this very moment I would say I am the richest person I know as I have all the time in the world.
