hardly happens

lucky in a way

infrequent chances

hope is scarce in this town.

exceptional opportunity

with an odd fail being the beginning of change

isolated the path travelled

occasionally losing faith in your choice

Thoughts scatter on future

no singular moment has brought me to now

exceeding expectations in my ability

many doors opened not a few

I accidentally started to live this extraordinary life.


After a depression lasting over 5 years, I was made redundant two weeks before Christmas. I had to move to my parents, friends and love interest seemed to be few. Then within four weeks, I had found a job in a school which started my new found love of working with students. I started to live my life that had been on hold waiting to be set free. I love the thought of an accident having such a big impact.

Keep smiling.
