Let there be light.

28th Oct, 2016

28th October – I reflect on what has been a pretty restless night. Not the lying awake staring at the ceiling which I had during the worst part of this process. But once awake in the early hours I struggled to get back to sleep and then tossed and turned well past my alarm. Once
