Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Sandra Marshall and I live in the South of Scotland near Edinburgh.

At this moment I am sitting in my parents’ house near Penicuik in the quiet space I have needed to find all year, away from chaos!

I came here today because I needed to think. I needed to focus my action in a way that will benefit the lives of the families I am a member of, in a method that will allow me to step forward in the never ending pattern of life. I gave myself permission to stop for one afternoon and look at life from a different perspective. I can truly listen to God’s voice in this house.

As I watched the wind making music with the leaves and branches on the trees and enjoyed the bright sunlight making the garden bright with laughter I considered again what steps to…

Have we honestly gone so far backwards in time?
I remember writing once a desolate dream, my country getting smaller beset by some mindless imperial dream of a past that never really existed.

A past that contained the force of slavery, Highland Clearances, great disadvantage whilst a minority sat on vast wealth of empire, they would not share.

That was then, the Nineteen hundreds when children were sent down mines and up crumbling chimneys, pulling vast loads of coal and cleaning the soot out in a sea of dark, hunger and pain. If you didn’t have a penny in those days gone by, you were a criminal and sent to a workhouse to eat gruel and wear rags until someone could get you out, or you died. When the Toll Puddle Martyrs in a peaceful demonstration were fired on by their own army because the Government did not want their…

A Case of Fake News

What is it people get from creating destructive fake news about an individual, a group, a community, a country………? I do have some idea at an individual level, I have been there not to long ago. However, that is not why I am writing this piece.

You see I am fed up of hearing badly reported, not objective, negative generalised news about the community I live in. Of course it is well known that such sensationalist fake news will bring a second of fame, however it brings nothing but further bad news, hurt people, loss of opportunity to the community concerned. This time the fake news was once more about wild teenagers, one of the favourite targets for

any journalist??? Not real news at all! This person travelling on the same bus as I did not say much that was new, just everything that was…

Not another brown letter through the door, you get used to looking out for them each time opening the envelope with dread in your heart, especially if it is from DWP.
This time it was not funny, for the second time in a month. “Your JSA has been stopped. You have claimed another benefit, Incapacity Benefit, or Income Support.” Stress, anxiety set in. A black panic, a huge knot of anxiety tearing at the pit of the stomach, weeping starts again. Sheer frustration makes me angry as I cry “but why?” ” How did that happen?” “I have never claimed Incapacity Benefit in my life, I have no need, I am perfectly capable of working. Job Seekers Allowance was all I was looking for to help me pay my bills.” “I am an independent person!” “Not again, do I really have to go through the process, from the start one…

THE WEAVER

12 MAY 2018 I cannot end with the negativity of the past. I agree with a certain singer I listened to last night who confirmed what I already know in my heart that LOVE is the key. I cannot work in the dark for very long I get a lump in my heart that doesn't …
