Last week was crazy. Probably the oddest thing was collecting my M.B.E. from the Queen.
I have written this blog section three times now – and I have deleted literally thousands of words – because nothing I have written captures what I feel. When I think of this honour I find it to be one compliment that I am unable to discount. I feel overwhelmed and I don’t know how to simultaneously acknowledge the magnitude of what has happened, and just to keep on going. Tears fill my eyes at the thought of it.
And that’s all I can say for now. Perhaps things will become clearer to me later.
