    I found a book written by a Swede here in my favourite secondhand bookshop in Antwerp …

    Imagine, I read this, in Chapter 2. ‘That is where my brain wants to go, and I allow it. On this bench in a park on the other side of the earth. I close my hand around a small hair clip, and in an instant I am back on the deck of my home at Waiheke Island. In New Zealand. A year after that Saturday.
    I had gone out onto the deck, as I had every morning since we’d built it.’
    From, “sonata for miriam’ by Linda Olsson :-)
