Lara Fairall is a doctor by training, a scientist by choice and a writer at heart. She was born in Cape Town and consequently has no sense of direction whatsoever unless it involves moving towards or away from its majestic mountain. She writes about what haunts her and is learning to trust that what unfolds on the page will entail remembering, oftentimes pain but ultimately safe passage home. Being part of the Life Right Collective brings many gifts: Dawn’s prodigious talent as a creative facilitator, new friends, being simultaneously humbled and inspired by others’ courage – but most wonderfully the singular, pure comfort of the universality of the human condition. Contributing author to the Life Righting Collective’s This is how it is anthology.
