Sound has always filled my house.
Wind whistles through the old doors and windows, stairs creak and floorboards groan. Every genre of music has issued from multiple instruments and iPods. My house has never been silent.
I am a dreamer for what could be and what might have been. I am a lover of fantasy. Find me a literature student my age who didn’t grow up with Harry Potter? I read my horoscope. I am interested in the nature of dreams. I am absorbed by a good story.
Medieval literature, particularly the dream visions, ticks all my boxes.
