I’ve got a head full of stories and a hard drive full of photos; I thought it was time to start putting them somewhere.
I haven’t written anything for many, many years. Please be kind! 🙏
Don't Be So Paranoid
We drove up the snowy, winding road towards the cosy A-frame cabin. We were excited, happy. The journey had been fun, and we’d been giddy with anticipation. We’d chatted and giggled like two teenagers on their first road trip. We’d sung along to our favourite tunes, munched snacks and slurped drinks, and then waddled quickly, skidding slightly on the ice, to service station bathrooms. But now, we were quiet and still, speechless at the beauty of the cabin and its surroundings.
We drove up the snowy, winding road towards the cosy A-frame cabin. Out the corner of my eye I saw him looking at me expectantly, waiting for a reaction I knew I couldn’t give him. I pretended not to notice, and continued staring out the passenger side of the windscreen, watching the snowflakes hurl themselves at the car.

In a former lifetime, I worked for a very fancy company. It’s the kind of company that most people have never heard of, including myself before I worked there, because it caters only to the obscenely wealthy. I fell into it by accident, having been looking for jobs that required fluent French speakers. It was a small, close-knit operation, and I loved my co-workers. Every day felt like hanging out with a bunch of friends. But when the CEO came into town for the annual Christmas party, we were all on our best, most professional behaviour.
