Animal loving, environment protecting, letter writing, nuisance who is getting ever more political as I become increasingly 'senior'. The reason, I hope, is not the little grey cells going dendrites-up, but the accumulated knowledge of many years of trying to make sense of what is happening, and a realisation that the world is rapidly approaching a cross-roads. Some might say it was ever thus, but I think the combination of the madness of Trump politics, Brexit, Pollution, Climate Change and many other factors has created an extremely toxic mix that is way beyond what the world has yet had to face. I am not a pessimist. I do believe we can send these forces packing and win back our planet from the selfish, the ideologues and the false clamoring of puffed up egos.
