15 June. Evening. El Phaba was noisier than ever by far. I was trying to get to sleep and it sounded like a herd of elephants. Just dropping things and banging on the floor, on and on and on.
A week-and-a-half ago, I cut the hedges on either side of our front garden and decided to cut the hedge on the side of No.29 as well to keep it tidy and manageable. I also filled three bin bags with rubbish that had collected by the hedge separating our front gardens mainly because some of it kept being blown through the gaps into our garden.
From my message to the Council’s reply, 11 July:
Ramadan ended. Then…
- I do not live any ordinary moments.
- With each breath, my experiences are the stepping stones laid before me of God to guide me home.
- I will bring awareness to each moment and allow it to teach me how to forgive, how to embrace, how to love and therefore how to live fully.”
