Where did you go?

Last February Will and his family began their journey to the Kimberley, after an internet search back in 2022 revealed a job advertised in Derby. There was a sort of half-hearted application for the job but when the phone call came that offered it, there was, strangely, absolutely no doubt he should accept.  It is mysterious how our life unfolds.  We step into the unknown, both consciously and unconsciously.  In his case, he had no idea how it might unfold yet he took that next step into each moment, following his instincts and best judgement.  The reality is, none of us know what the next step will bring.
