Today my dear friend Alison and I spent a pleasant day retracing steps taken when our children were small and we saw each other every day. Since those days I have continued to live in the same house in the same place. She has been a bit of a vagabond, moving 4 times since we first met back in 1990. And now she is off again, this time completely out of the country to spend three years in the Dominican Republic to work amongst people who don’t worry about what to wear but rather if they have anything at all to wear, and don’t worry about what they fancy to eat but if they will eat. Food for thought!
