Daydreaming is always a good idea..

I’m sitting here with half an hour between clients, with ideas and thoughts whizzing around. You know the thing – contemplating the conversation I’ve just had and looking forward to the next one. Thinking about sleep, and trance. Listening to the sound of the…

Time slowed down
