An article on battered wives, where the battery is in the form of words: and words can break your soul as surely as sticks and stones break bones. The question on my lips is why does she not leave him? And of course there are too many answers to that question. The answers may be formulated in terms of love, but this has nothing to do with love, it's about control. It's about brainwashing. It's about the constant threat, the tsunami of constant belittling demeaning,destroying words.
An article on Scottish independence, how finally, a majority of Scotland wants to leave the union. I understand how Scotland feels. It's a small majority but the momentum is with 'Yes'. I too have to find a consensus between the various parts of me over when to leave a job or a home or a relationship. Has this economic and political union called "The United Kingdom", been abusing Scotland psychologically these past four hundred years? I can't rule it out. Can you?
Scotland. We wish you well. We will always think kindly upon you and we will always love you.
