This is a blog inspired by the happenstance of life. When I started it I thought it would mainly be random stuff, but over the last year it’s got more political as Scotland has woken up during the Independence Referendum.
I’m an environmental scientist and Scottish Green Party activist based in Biggar in southern Scotland and have campaigned on various issues including climate change, public transport, greenspace and Fairtrade. I think that many of the things that lead to us trashing our environment are also trashing our communites, particularly a greed culture and corporate power which has got out of control. As well as writing about political stuff I also write about random things which interest me and may occasionally post an attempt at a poem if I feel inspired!
