Everything Beautiful Is Far Away 

Imagine for a moment that you are a girl in your mid-twenties. Perhaps you don’t need to imagine. You are smartly dressed and work in a nearby office. You are independent, self-possessed, successful without being showy about it. All of your friends consider you attractive.

What on Earth must be running through your mind, for you to be standing in a crowded high street newsagents on a Thursday lunchtime, quietly tearing page after page out of a copy of Bride magazine?
Paper gathers at your feet like confetti, or rising floodwater.

What happened? How did it come to this?
Is this a pivotal moment where your life takes a turn for the worse, or a turn for the better?
