Communication is the more spiritual part of our book. It and other readings' scattered throughout help to inspire the soul and bring a feeling of continuity and belief in self. Welcome to our family home. Both in a spiritual sense and material time and place. Life in Rowlands Gill from around 1900 is just at the beginning of a newly established farming and mining village. Nestled deep within the beautiful Derwent Valley, across the river from Gibside Estates a 12th century residence once belonging to the Earls of Strathmore and the old queen mothers' family. A long walk from our roots in Scotland and Ireland with much sadness and loss through the 1st World War. Mixed in with spiritual writings which others' have asked me to set down and which are deeply inspirational and educational. The book is an on going project which has already taken many compassionate years to set down and is a much loved project for us all.
A boy of 17 intrigued by all things subtle and often over-looked, is diagnosed with a multitude of mental illnesses, and therefore prescribed a vast array of medications. Flattened by the weight of his peers judgement, he isolates himself away for years, refraining from all social contact and destroying all that is technological, but for one item, his laptop. With this lone piece of hardware he begins to write out his daily thought process, delving deep into his mind and its peculiar predicament. This habit however, begins to lead him further away from the social norm; letting the onset of further troubles lead psychologists and his family to the conclusion that his mind has begun to break down. Now left with little options, he begins to dig a little further into his now labelled "insane" mind, and unravels a philosophical outlook that warps the boundaries of 21st century living, and therefore sends him on a journey for not only his sanity, but for his life.
