My first TikTok was a blink. That’s the idea, apparently. It was a blink of several young people pulling up veg in a farmer’s field. In the very last frame, one of them, a photographer, pulled and raised a carrot in triumph. The look on her face, that was the shot.

I'm originally from Liverpool and worked as a national magazine journalist for more than 30 years before suffering a stroke at age 53. I started blogging as part of a neuro-rehabilitation programme and wrote the very first entries with one finger of my disabled left hand. Later, art became another therapy for me at Headway East London's Submit To Love studios. I blog regularly and volunteer as a teaching assistant, coaching schoolchildren in aspects of journalism.
