Telling our stories

We have a new book ready, we are in discussion with the Publishers and we need your help to pay for the print run.

It is a book of poetry called "I WALK THE LAND" about being in the wild environment and our relationship with natural world. A photograph is shown along with each poem of the beautiful landscapes of Scotland. For a donation of £10 you will receive a copy of the book posted to you.

Please help us get this book published, thank you!

From the book, a poem: "Meditation Next To The Tweed"

"Sitting by the Tweed,
I’m aware of massive earthy energies,
The slow movement of the water,
The gentle swish that might be a
Salmon breaching for a fly.

Floating on a sense of timelessness,
Gently attuning to the rhythms that are vast,
Deep time is here:
Years, Centuries, Millenia.

Resting in my listening body,
Senses completely impartial,
The tinge of spring in my nostrils,
As I breathe in the scent of the earth.

Somewhere in my mind I resonate with a truth,
That is gentle, sustaining and universal.
It holds me through my perception,
As lightly as a ripple,
Riding on the surface of the river."


Our first book is still also available, for any donation of £15 or more you will receive a signed copy of the book.   Thank you!

"All my life I have experienced myself as different, in 2014 I received a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome. Since then I have made sense of my work as an artist over 20 years by compiling a book - a visual exploration of the experience of Asperger's. I don't see this as an illness, only my brain works differently to the way most people's brains work. I see the world differently because of this. This book is how I came to terms with the way I see the world and the psychology of what I perceive."
