I left home at 17. On the 9th  of July 2018, having recently turned 36, I found myself sat in the back of my parent’s car driving from my sisters to London. The reduction of the backseat position inflaming past guilt, embarrassment and the muscle memory of lost control. We pass 2 trucks. One truck had crashed while the other waited patiently on the slip road. Written on both trucks the word “experience”. One experience crashed, one experience waited patiently on the slip road. I grabbed my phone and shoot what I could.
