Right before my life shattered into a million pieces, I remember thinking that it must be easier to just collapse, be given mind numbing drugs and go slouch on a couch in a clinic somewhere.

After the year I had experienced, I needed something to lighten my days and bring a smile to my face.

Every day is a battle between finding time and getting everything done. Some days it feels like you’re a magician, magicking things out of nowhere, moving through time that doesn’t exist, putting out spot fires, dealing with the demands of staff, customers, suppliers.
