January I woke up on 1st January 2012 on a beach and swam in the sea. I hate cold water but it was just perfect – blood temperature and the sea looked serene. There were jellyfish apparently, but I didn’t get stung.
February My sister brought joy to keep me strong while other family members were still in pain. We scampered through the lanes of Bur Dubai our senses awakened by extraordinary foods; and sipped Champagne in unparalleled luxury. I was courted with coffee. I fell asleep in the taxi after a ridiculously, blingy night out.
March Brought exquisite morsels, the veil lifting on Iranian food (and its hot and cold foods) and whole weekend dedicated to food. I met someone who actually drives an electric car here in Dubai in line with his organic principles. I finally mastered croissants.
May I learned to make coffee…really well. Pencils were sharpened, paints unearthed for a fresh look (at life) on my pie. Middle Eastern treasure was unearthed in Yemen via Dubai. I ate momos in Kathmandu.
July I listened to Debussy. Rain chased me from England to the banks of Lake Geneva.
December Floated by on Champagne with good friends and family.
I saw in the New Year sitting round a camp fire once again.
