Many of us pine for a world we once wished to inhabit, only never did. Life changes and choices, enforced or voluntary, intended or otherwise, can govern where we end up, who we’re with and what we think of that. Coming across a version of the world you once idolised can cause reflection, thinking about where you are, who you’re with and why. Many of our sub-cultures and worlds grow

The Egret’s Way

I first saw an Egret (a little egret) from a train window. I was on my way to Cornwall, to meet an English Nature reserve warden.
