whispered love




I graduated in English from St Andrews University, and took a post as an assistant governor in the prison service. During my father's terminal illness I got work as a nursing assistant to be close to home. Then had a teaching career that lasted 24 years. I changed and grew a lot through my teaching I think. Maybe I found an outlet for practicality - you do - you love - you become. Each year the children were a blessing and gift in their youth, their growing, their exuberance and their hope. I have many treasured memories, and it also taught me about living in community. It helped me grow from love of the lonely wild places to a faith and recognition that relationship is at the heart of God. My teaching years were full of romance and reclaimed innocence, joy and kindness, and growing together in love.
