“27th November 2011: arrive in Santiago de Compostela with my school bag. Everything is different now. Return to a house that was never really my home, realizing I bought it in fear. I was aiming for a different life then. 1 of 62,970 residential mortgage holders in arrears*, €100k negative equity. I let it all go, all of my things, out into the world to be used, valued. Gifting with the words Wishing you Love & Abundance & Joy, learning to wish that for myself too.

*Now 136,564 Residential Mortgages in Arrears of 90 days or more, Central Bank of Ireland 4th March 2014.
