Example text

Kezia was a tall, statuesque woman usually seen at fashion shows wearing a large checked blanket coat and with her baby daughter, Cayli, strapped to her back. Paul Cavaco, a stylishly dressed young American of Spanish Cuban descent, was half her size and when I met them again at the Paris collections the family was turning heads among the fashion glitterati. While on holiday with them at their home in the Hamptons, I noticed that Kezia would disappear for hours on end.

Often I didn’t even have time to relieve my bladder as I rushed from meeting to phone call to therapist to meeting. If only I’d kept some of that time just for personal space, even a couple of minutes between meetings, I later reasoned, I could have saved myself a fortune in the latest anti-stress cure.
