X marks the spot

February 24th, 2014, 8am

I’m forever being told, ‘Look up’ and today I’m glad I did. Up in the sky, plane contrails had formed a child’s pirate story ‘X’. I was busy contemplating what the ‘X’ might be indicating, when a lovely little bird appeared on a hedge, nodded in acknowledgement of his audience and started to sing a long and beautiful tune.

Suddenly, I was transported to a Disney-eque cartoon, where a dreamlike world merges with reality. My journey to work was a full of storytelling imagination … amazing how inspiration suddenly takes you!
