For the last few weeks I have struggled watching or reading the news. This scandal is brewing and raging on, one of the worst, if not the worst, Britain has known. Where will it end? Who knows, with talk of several other celebrities and politicians involve

Sometimes kindness can be the last straw   I was going to write quite a lengthy post and I ran out of time, or rather it turned to be more difficult to write than I anticipated. Kindness, the last straw? Perhaps you will recognise this feeling, when it all

Women change the world, we all do. Good or bad. Ever since I can remember I wanted to change things in this world, all the injustices. Why should anybody go without food, basic care, shelter, recognition, love, respect? The list is endless. Food, care, sh

As I've been hiding myself for many years, shying away from publicity, some people think I'm some sort of hermit. The stereotype of the reclusive writer lived on through me. Many of you will know why I have protected this way. Living in fear is not fun. It

Well, my new website is finally up. Still needs tweaking but it's there. So, yes, I did give in. I've created a Facebook page and I have my own site. Time to get out there, everybody said. I'm kind of private and was reluctant to face such exposure, but he

My mother died when I was a teenager. Many years have passed but I'm still learning about her, not from family or friends. When she married my father she distanced herself from the only friend she had and there is no family. My mother is still a mystery to

So here we go, for a while i've been dabbling a little. It started last summer, guided by the Dear One who sat me down with a pen in my hand and not a word. _ I knew what it meant,there was so

I believe that always, or almost always, in all childhoods and in all the lives that follow them, the mother represents madness. Our mothers always remain the strangest, craziest people we've ever met.   M.Duras A mother who is really a moth

Why on earth do I feel compelled to react to this? I'm talking about the book review about abusive relationships.   To claim the main reason women stay in an abusive relationship is mainly out of fear of loneliness is in my eyes a very weak argumen

Most of us choose to become mothers, as such we have a responsibility and duty to our children.After all, they certainly didn't have a choice and they depend on us for survival and love. This does not mean we have to suffer our children or be slaves to th
