These little pieces have been through many layers and attacks from me. They have struggled to become what they are as they really didn’t want to pull together and me being me, I dug in my heels and refused to stick them in the bin. I pushed and pushed until they resolved. I am not sure they are grateful for my nagging stubbornness. I sometimes think they wanted to pass to the next life of becoming a strange compost but that wasn’t on my agenda.
