TO REBUILD A DREAM

Fran and Nick are dear friends of mine, and would never ask for help, so Fran’s mother and the Outlaw, are doing it on their behalf. My daughter, Fran is the strongest, most intrepid, free spirited woman I know. She has always known her own mind and from a small child, has stubbornly stuck to it.

We have become hostages of our technological sophistication and scientific advancement and are now finely balanced on what is now proving to be a very sharp knife edge, which may yet prove to be our undoing.. As this warning from politicians in the US shows, western governments are covertly preparing for a natural or man-made ‘event’ which may plunge the west into darkness. “As the technologically […]
