'So life is beautiful but painful too',that's what they say over coffee, to make silverlinings, they say 'this is where you really grow - this pain' and I think of the light on the side of an aubergine on a summers day in Stoke Newington stilling me to a silent celebration of life as it is. And the way a lentil can sprout all on it's own in a bed of damp cotton wool not even in want of a windowsill, everything it needs it has, and how I'll never remember being born. The beauty or the pain. And how quickly I forget that the air in me was once in you too and that everything I need I have.
