Sound of Silver: 10 Years On

When was it that you first felt old? When did you first look back on the five, ten years that have gone by and realise it had disappeared in the rear-view mirror far faster than you had imagined? I know I started to feel old pretty young.  I might have been halfway through academy (high school) when I really started to be aware of how quickly everything seemed to be going.  Of course it seems a bit daft now, to think you’re old at 13 — Read more →
