I remember when only white heterosexual males had rights –many things have changed for the better

The sad thing is that there are way too many humans on the planet and we are causing the extinction of all life

My maternal grandmother worked in the cotton mills at age six

She went to school for half a day and then to work

Gay men were put into mental institutions until 1955

Racism was the norm

People with disabilities were put in instituations

Women hads no rights nor status

When I was in women’s lib all we wanted was equal rights

We were abused by other women who claimed things were as they should be

Women had no rights nor status

We couldn’t have a bank account unless our husband or father went guarantor

We couldn’t buy an house

 Land lords would not rent to separated women

 Police would not help when there was abuse

I confronted the police who treated me like I was the criminal not the victim after I had been chased with an axe

The police said “ You always go back”

To which replied “there is no where to go!”

(no such thing as women’s shelters back then)

MY first job (in the 1960s) was working with computers that were the size of wardrobes in refrigerated rooms

WRE 1965


A job I was forced to give up when I got married as married women were not allowed to hold government jobs

I didnt want to get married

I cried at my wedding

 I got pregnant because my boyfriend (who was 6 foot 4 and 20 stone) drove to the middle of no where

It was pitch dark and I had no idea where we were

And he said “Come across or walk home”

I got pregnant and had to get married if I wanted to keep the baby

I was also labelled a slut and a whore because men were expected to be promiscuous and women were expected to be virgins

My husband was frequently fighting with his boss and quitting work

(no socially security back then)

he made a habit of hitting me

On one occasion when I was having my face stitched after my  front teeth had been knocked out (not the first time) the nurse said to me

“My husband doesn’t hit me”

Implying that I deserved it

 If I ever mentioned the abuse the comment was mostly

“ You must have deserved it”


 “I don’t want to know”

For decades I believed I deserved abuse

(Probably because I had been abused since I was a baby – my mother wanted a boy—not me)

Instead of continuing with my personal horror stories I am counting my blessings

I have the best children and grandchildren

this is an old picture and my eldest grandson is not pictured

And I love where I live

 In the following book I hope to help those who wish to develop their clairvoyant abilities.

In “The Clairvoyant Experiences Of A Sceptic” I told a few of my clairvoyant experiences.

Listening to others similar stories made me realize that

it is so much better if you can have these experiences first hand.

Kung fu tz  (Confucius) say “Perseverance prospers”

So don’t give up – you will succeed

And use the recorded meditations in my blog

The clairvoyant Experiences of a Sceptic is not a literary masterpiece

but a true story. I majored in sociology not literature

I dont know the meaning of life:

nor understand the nature of reality:

I do know physical death is not the end.

And there are so many amazing stories omitted so as not to break client confidentiality.

The second part I wrote as therapy and had not intended to include.

It wasn’t included in the original l publication

( I started shaking when I tried to write about the abuse so it is badly written and a great deal omitted)


I wrote and published this sci fi short story a few years ago (under the above title) when the human population was only 7.4 billion:

(1st published 4th April 2017)

It is now  8 billion.

Our cultural norms and the Protestant Ethic are causing the extinction of all life.

I wrote this as social satire and sympathetic magic

I realize my writing style doesn’t fit what people expect

My excuse –I majored in sociology not literature 😛

I wanted to put my idea that humans are not indigenous to the planet

A few lines  from this short story:

“Most humans think that those who live in harmony with the environment are primitive and inferior. Actually they don’t think.

They just mindlessly conform to what those in power and their entertainment media tell them.

 They are really stupid but consider themselves superior to all other life forms because they talk:

They think if something or someone doesn’t talk they don’t understand.

They thoughtlessly destroy everything. They call some creatures vermin, when humans are the vermin. They kill insects and destroy all the trees despite the fact that insects and trees are essential.

And everything literally goes down the drain polluting the oceans instead of nourishing other life.”
