On weddings

“There is something sacred about sharing your wedding day with your friends and family. Only later when I attended a friend’s wedding on my own, freshly single, did I realise this. It struck me as we all surrounded the newly wed couple and released butterflies in the air. You become a witness to a couple’s commitment to each other. You become a person who can remind them of that commitment when times are rough. We could have done with a whole lot more witnesses.”

Butterflies in dreams

Slowly you will rise and see
That what you wanted, who you are
Is not what you aspired to be.
And you start again,
You start anew.
Slowly you will rise and see
That what you loved, who they are
Is not what you dreamed them to be.
And you start again,
You start anew.
Slowly you will rise and see
That what you knew, who you were
Is tangled forever in what you’ll be
(And you start again – always
You start again,
Because dreams like butterflies
Always fly free)
