I was half way home from my walk this morning and felt really thirsty. The little person had a small bottle of water which he shared with me but when I drink I drink a lot and there was not enough to quench my thirst. I felt like a traveller in a desert, far from home and hot and thirsty. All I could think about was water – cold, cold water. I kept walking and after a while I saw a shimmer in the distance. At first I thought it was a mirage but as I got closer I realised that I had found an oasis in the midst of this suburban desert. There were no palm trees or camels but who cares when you are thirsty?
