Sam dreamed of a place where the sun always shone and the land was filled with exotic life.
He saw himself in a sun lounger by a pool, sipping an eternal cocktail while steak sizzled on a barbeque.
He had savings enough to get started, and he could find work.
Ach, thought Sam. Who would give an old sod like me a job? I should have made the leap years ago, found the courage to look beyond this concrete horizon when I had the chance.
He took a pierce-and-ping dinner from the freezer compartment, put it in the microwave and poured a glass of milk.
