This website has been created by Anne Yarwood, resident in Ascot for over 50 years, to show how individuals CAN effect change… can DO something about their concerns, in an imaginative way.
This month’s theme is :-
KEEP ON GOING ON
I quite fancy myself as The Crone: the old woman holding wisdom.
What I do, wrapped in that mantle, is LISTEN…for many an hour..listen to friends and family. And what I hear is inspirational bravery…determination, gritting of teeth, stoic acceptance, loyalty, immense kindliness, putting yourself out, EYES ON A DISTANT HORIZON. This edition of our website (which always honours INSPIRATION) honours this often unacknowledged, unseen goodness of people, determined to take life forward.. These actions keep the world going amidst outward evidence of cruelty, injustice and horror; all of us ,leaf- cutting ants…
