Even if I wanted to post the letters to you, I do not have an address to send them to. I am writing these letters and keeping them in an Indomie box under my bed. Sometimes,

‘Each day and each night that I place myself under his keeping, I shall not be forgotten. I shall not be destroyed. I shall not be imprisoned. I shall not be harassed by evil powers.’ (Prayer by St Brigit of Kildare, 453-524) My mind always plays back to that night. The night of the 14th-15th of April.  I swear, there is no way I haven’t thought about it. I have
