We're all in it together...

Some of my favourite pieces have been when I have been writing about society issues. The fabulous twins I met who had survived beyond the odds and far beyond their life expectancy. The forensic psychiatrist who is arguably the UK’s leading authority on stalking. Joining a plane that had been converted into a flying eye hospital when it touched down in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Life is a rich tapestry, as REM (sort of) observed. It’s the myriad human stories, our little lives, that provide the timbre and the colour.
