Ruth writes: “I recently spent the day visiting my daughter at university. It’s the same uni I went to. We strolled around some of my old haunts. The brand new art block where I had spent many days, weeks and months of my life looked very familiar. As we walked the corridors, memories flooded back. I saw the same old printing press. And I noticed the names of tutors were all new.

Everything was the same. And everything was different. I wondered how often I revisit things, assuming I remember that they are the same, when in fact they are entirely different.”
