Nuances of living…


Even the ‘nays’ and ‘ayes’ of youth have their revenge.


The intoxication of our early-life responses eventually gives way,

turns in on itself and introduces us

to the consequence of blind enthusiasm.


Having thus acquired deliberation…

And no longer rash…

We learn, instead, to side against our own youth with the self-same fervour.


Ten years on…

We see that this, too, was naive.
