THE EXCHANGE ON SUNDAY ! ARTIST PROFILE P. 2 • MANCHESTER INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL P.4 A TONIC OF TRAILS P.8 • POETRY P.10 • RECIPE P.11
Looking out, and as the rains begin to fall, heavy on my head… my gaze shifts to the other side of the sun - hotter, deeper, further away. Expectant smiles in waiting, only days, hours, minutes, seconds till we will spread our wings and leave behind the pulse of the every day. Our imaginings of the exotic take us high above the clouds, floating , soon to touch down, soon to breathe – at least for a while. As we snatch bags, lock doors, pack up cars, or run for a train, up and down stairs, children on piggyback, shades half off, napping in the lounge, late departures, arrivals, night journeys into the new… As we step out, feasting on the sensation of discovery, our shores become distant, immediacy stealing the fore. So is the eternal inquisitive nature of human kind. The ability to adapt and learn, the child inside will never die, but may be and sometimes too easily is forgotten… ? Sooree Pillay
