"You're older than you've ever been...and now you're even older"
I can't deny that things have become much clearer since the day Ahmed’s smiling eyes looked deep into mine. “You have a small face” he said. “Now: stare at this light. Now, follow my finger...”.
Over the last twelve months I've bought a sideboard, decided that maybe olives are not vile after all, joined the civic society and now: I own a pair of reading glasses.
