Gill (and m) often used to say that of all my writings, the one’s in this area would be most helpful #, encouraging, uplifting and perhaps even “inspirational” to others…because it, the story was so unusual (“so suddenly dramatic, SO devastating turning our entire lives upside down” as a family in another country), and/or rather “unique” (that’s yet another story or book, or series of books, perhaps)… and I have to live with, manage and work around my difficulties/deficits…daily (how I got to this point in life’s amazing journey and WHY I write so prolifically).
# Perhaps in time we’ll see see whether m (a wife) was right …but aren’t they nearly always right, as usual!
“Here was a light behind the despair, beyond the darkness. At first a flicker of an ember, just a tiny pin-prick of dawning possibilities. Then burning slowly, brightly and bigger, a glimmer, a candle in the blackness of despair, which gave off just enough of a glow (luminescence?) to light a path. And so show us the way ahead… a path to endless possibilities…from the darkness into the eternal light.”
“Sharing, informing, educating, encouraging, empowering, igniting, uplifting (and perhaps even) inspiring”
Best wishes from the First City to see the light each new day
