Quiet Corner



I generally dislike most pictures of myself, but I like this particular one because it manages to capture my penchant for quietness. We were going home after a particularly boisterous night of festive revelry and I’d had loads of fun, but I was also looking forward to rest and the silence of our home.

It’s a bit like the whole freelance writing thing. I love the work, but sometimes, I get overwhelmed with the logistics and anxieties. I realise that when this happens, there is a need to just zip up, chill out and regroup.

The beauty of this working arrangement is that I have the space to do just that, and I was rather surprised at how the strategy of taking a week off made things so much clearer and productive when I got back to things.

Hopefully, I will get better in this managing of my own affairs in the year to come.
