Sometimes when we are searching for our future, the future finds us…

Johari’s Window is a love letter, a game, and a fictional romance. It tells the story of Suzy, a university student and young woman from Middle England. She is attractive and intelligent, but her reckless, impulsive nature brings about romantic disappointments.

One of her suitors is the erudite Dr Raven, who is an ambitious, mercurial charmer, but emotionally reticent. He is a strategist who tells her that, "Someone else got there first”.

Their encounter is a turning point in Suzy’s life, which propels her on a soul-searching quest for romance. An unintended consequence in her search for meaning leads to self-discovery and self-actualisation as a writer. Her journey is a Dantesque passage through trials and tribulations. Her memories look forwards as well as backwards.

Suzy’s epiphany at a window is the moment when the subtleties and layers of meaning in language and memory are truly revealed to her. It is the language of the body which makes us human. Suzy discovers the human capacity for many kinds of love, which sustains her, in the infinite chambers of the heart.
