The harried, headless chicken, Who multitasks and sometimes crumbles under the pies she bakes, Or the many crosses checked on her multicoloured organiser, Organising selves of others except hers, Hiding in the bathroom, Sighing in relief, Brimming with love.

The Art of Living with Fear

My eyes closed as the wheels began to move the plane backward. I focused on my breath. “What are you afraid of?” I said to myself, “You have been to more dangerous countries.
