“You’re a storyteller! Write a book, write a short story, write a letter, write a poem. Write anything – just write!”
It’s only when you start unravelling the threads of your existence that you find your way back to where things all began.
It’s like a thousand mini Eureka moments in reverse and when you piece them all together, all of a sudden you realise exactly how and why you got here.

“Colours”, she said.
“Do you remember that poem you wrote when you were little? It was called Colours. I loved that poem. That was a marvellous poem. I still have that poem somewhere… yes, Colours it was called”.
I have no idea why that poem came into her thoughts at that moment, but it did.
All I know is that wherever she is now, she’ll be proud of me – and while my world is filled with words, I hope hers is filled with colours.
