Drinking coffee and eating banana loaf at Terminal 4 whilst discovering for the first time the philosophies of Seneca – On the Shortness of Life. Having small and beautiful “aha” moments whilst enjoying my airport latte. The gentle rhythm of the airport, some far off beeps from a reversing cart, the tinkling of spoons on china, the steady chatter of travellers. Occasionally I glance up to watch those amongst me and admire the view out of the giant glass windows. The concrete landscape littered with mighty planes, all with their unique and mysterious destinations. That constant grey sky that I know as home and I now feel a peace with as I sit in my warm and comfortable chair. Right here, right now, happiness is Costa Coffee in Terminal 4…

I am very excited. I have just discovered that I have been picked to be a guest blogger for the new Fe-line blog that’s launching in November. Fe-line is all about connecting like-minded females across the world (the group originatEd in Oxford) and has been kicking up a storm in our city for a couple of years and is now ready to send its cosmic aerials out into the world. And I’ll be driving an aerial, so to speak.
So I’m hugely excited to be part of this project. This autumn/winter I get to be a roving reporter seeking out the colourful and curious, hoping to amuse and inspire.
And I’ll have deadlines for my stories. Just like Lois Lane.
