    The car park is a concrete cave, a holding cell, a sarcophagus. From the outside, it looks like other buildings, but inside, there are darker, deeper modalities. I wind down to sub level four.

    Turning 40 is like any age — unless you're a woman. French writer Anais Nin wrote that we 'are made up of layers, cells, constellations'. Is it any wonder that at 40 those layers and cells start to settle in places we'd rather they didn't?
