It started with a pencil. As a child from the outskirts of London, I was brimming with excitement at the prospect of meeting relatives from my Father’s birthplace, Trinidad. The visit was inspiring as I heard tales of an exotic island in the sunshine and an exquisite sounding bird called the Hummingbird.
…….and then there was the pencil. We parted with gifts, one of which a pencil engraved with the family name joined with the magical word Emporium. For a child who was desperate to be part of one of Enid Blyton’s circus stories, the word Emporium conjured up all sorts of dream scenarios. I already loved to draw but never had such a grand looking pencil to make my marks with.
