Am I in the right place? The search for reassurance.

I’m at London’s St Pancras station.

A Spanish couple with heavy bags and anxious eyes ask me if they’re on the right platform for Gatwick airport.

Their English is faltering, my Spanish is worse.

But the good news is, they’re fine.

As I tell them, they’re on the right platform and their train will be here soon.

They hesitate…and then ask me if I am sure?

I say I am sure, nodding vigorously. They almost believe me…

Sometimes whether its trains or some other concern, we just need reassurance along the way.

Am I in the right place?

If today you are kind, hopeful and brave, then don’t panic…you’re in the right place, and on the right platform.

Where the train will take you, I don’t know.

The possibilities from here are endless.

But you’re in the right place now.
