I am fed up hearing people in this country talk about food poverty. While there are food deserts, and too many places where good quality food is too expensive and not accessible, there is not a shortage of food. For too many people, however, there is a shortage of money. And there is an acute shortage of trust.
I am fed up with the claims that Christmas is cancelled. Nothing could be further from the truth. This year, the toughest of years in our collective memory, Christmas just got a whole lot more real.
About this time of year, we are normally walking on the northern tip of Skye. It’s not been possible this year but it has got me thinking. It has got me thinking about what living @ the edge really looks and feels like.

I have been reading Roman Krznaric’s wonderful new book, “The Good Ancestor: How to Think Long Term in a Short-Term World.” It has certainly got me thinking.
Climate change is the greatest threat facing our planet today. Our failure to act over the last 40 years …. means that we may already be beyond the point of no return. We are not just at the edge. We are well over the precipice.
