Hallith Bates drew this and I liked it a lot.
I was homeschooled for most of my school years and all my schoolwork was done sitting at the dining table each day. When I got stuck on my work, I would stare at a huge map of the world pinned to the wall.
My mum taught me how to draw treasure maps and then stain them with coffee or tea so they looked ancient.
I also used to draw maps of the neighbourhood with friends houses and places like “the fairy garden” sketched out in fine detail.
Right now my life has changed course – it feels dramatic but it’s been a slow and steady turning of the wheel – and the map I used to have for my life has been thrown out entirely.
It’s time to find a new map and plot a new course. Who knows where I’ll be one year from now!
