As I grow older, I find myself wishing more often that I had just one thing I was passionate about.

Last week I was packing my overnight bag for a weekend away in the city, carefully selecting and laying out my underwear, pants, shirts, jackets, socks and shoes and laying them out on my bed. I had to laugh when I realised every item was black. Every single item. I actually had to snap a […]
