When we first came to this land, I felt like a Borrower… The Borrowers are from a children’s book by Mary Norton. They are little people, they come out at night when noone is about and borrow things. they live in the same house as the big people but noone knows they are there. That’s how I felt… we lived here but noone knew, it felt surreal and dreamlike.
I still get that feeling 9 years later, often on the drive into town. I feel a long way from anyone, even me sometimes. And then views like this on a daily basis, just add to that feeling of surreality.
