The word this autumn is:busy.
I have been to Paris where we saw great art, and felt fellowship with the revolutionaries! So much grandeur and immense buildings that reflected almost how petty humans were thought to be at that time.
And whilst Monet’s beautiful waterlilies were fabulous to walk around, I find it sad that Monet wanted them to be places of peace and quiet retreat for the workers Yet hrre they are hoaching with tourists…
On the 29th of October two of our directors Christine and Morin, went to the Unite/Mental Health Nurse Association Scottish Conference. Our presentation on how bibliotherapy makes a difference was well received. We all read the W. B. Years poem, The Lake Isle of Inisfree, so calm and beautiful.
The conference speakers were arranged live on the Facebook page for SMHNA and a link to presentations will be added here soon.
Thanks to the organisers, they were clear and helpful all the way. And we had a great lunch!
Our director, Adrian has been awfy busy writing and now publishing his first novel called Scotched, by Ade Johnston
It is a tale of a Scottish town, with characters that draw you into their dark addicted inner worlds. It also holds much social commentary about the world we are living in now. Stark at times, funny, but most of all, true.
