One of the reasons I started Audrey was to explore my love of words and practice writing. I wrote about one of my favourite words: somehow. But now I'm thinking of another, equally poignant one - stay. Stay makes me think of things that have become reliable thanks to their familiarity. There's a sense of security… Continue reading Stay
I feel sad to announce that this will be the last Audrey post for a while. It's a long story but the crux is that, as well as being really busy with work and uni, I need to process my thoughts before I can contemplate sharing them.
