While you were working – Tie a Scarf, Kathmandu, Nepal

How lucky we are so safely tucked into a relatively unaffected part of Nepal during what, as far as I can tell, might stand as the largest natural disaster of this year. Buildings we were standing on lay in rubble, the death toll sits at over 8000 and rises daily and all the while we […]

These unbidden fish are plucked from the still waters of our minds so individually they rarely carry […]
