A long time ago, my mother in law told me that there are three components to happiness. Looking forward to something, to love and be loved, and to be recognised and acknowledged by others. Today I will focus on the last one: recognition, and what does recognition mean for a writer.
I believe that literary work doesn’t really belong to me any more once it’s out in the public. Every reader then makes of it whatever they want in their own imagination. So my intention was to not talk about “Far Away” at all, but there are two things that are mentioned in the story that I would like you to see/hear.
