‘introduction'





Christopher Sands, digital still, 2014


   


  - Ruth sometimes referred to a brief encounter, just inside Marks and Spencer's in Loughborough and it happened near the start of time spent in England. A charity worker noticed her and wanted to say something and she stopped. What he said seemed to have something to do with the story mentioned at the start of this text. Did she hear him correctly? She put money in the tin and saw the funny side, but what could she say if she saw him again? She told the story a few times, looking for an ending.
