This evening, I can’t sleep … I have the comfort of my bed and the health of all my family, to take shelter in, but many do not. Health workers face fatigue, with such uncertainty ahead, people are queuing at empty food banks and the landscape is changing. You may or may not have read my words, recently. I found them to be liberating. And so I would sincerely like to know, how are you? Tonight, some of us grieve the easing of enforced lockdown – and some of us appreciate it. The sense of security found in a common goal, a shared goal, is changing and could now stand to divide, which it must not, above all, in adapting to a new uncertainty. And so, I want to create a post where you can talk openly about how you are doing. I invite you to write here, if you would like that. I look forward to reading how you are, about your life, and current experiences. For you to share your stories visibly with others too, here. All my love, and thoughts Duffy

‘Well, not entirely sure why now is the right time, and what it is that feels exciting and liberating for me to talk. I cannot explain it. Many of you wonder what happened to me, where did I disappear to and why.

‘A journalist contacted me, he found a way to reach me and I told him everything this past summer. He was kind and it felt so amazing to finally speak.
