What is it you truly value most in your life? What could you not exist without? For me, it doesn’t take long to recognise that it's undoubtedly music. I genuinely believe that anyone and everyone can find, love and use music and they should absolutely have that right.

I love that young people, especially on here, share strong opinions on climate change and the little being done about it. Just out of interest, are you getting involved with the global youth climate strikes? Good luck with the competition!...

A QUESTION

FREE WRITING

PROMPT: At Home

Those who know me well will understand my tendency to burden myself. The burdens are sweet and often fruitful, to be fair, but when they seem to gradually engulf me, in spite of tantalizing appearances, there comes a time when I desperately require a chance to simply be at home 'within myself' - mindful, you might say.
