Dear Martin,

You are my CV.

Today I write for a living because you told me I can.

You asked me to write for you and wouldn’t take no for an answer.

You published me and showed me kindness.

You edited me, but were immovable.

You believed in me and pushed me fiercely.

You scrutinised my words to make me better.

Even today, stood, as I am, surrounded by the kind of people I wish to be, I find myself quoting you.

You changed my life. And now you’re changing yours.

I wish I could give you even a fraction of what you’ve given me.

Instead I wish you the world, but that’s at your feet already.

My love and endless gratitude will have to do.

Marie xxx
