My story about the Galgael Trust in Glasgow has been published by the BBC today. Here’s a link to the story below and to the Galgael’s site.

I used to live in Deptford and at the time noticed the heron’s living along the heavily urbanised River Ravensbourne . The river runs through Lewisham and empties into the Thames at Deptford Creek.

Roy at the junction in Stamford Hill,
The bus broke down and Roy was sat at the front of the top deck looking out of the window.
Why are you wearing this jacket? I like your hat.
‘I asked God to help me, to show himself to me’
Where you in a church?
‘I was in a church, but that doesn’t matter. I asked if God was there then I wanted him to show himself to me and to help me manage my life for the better. I’ve got two Bibles, do you want one?’
I’ve got one thanks.
‘Well read it then’

‘You have to be sincere, you have to believe. Look, it’s like the breeze, you can feel it. It’s there all the while, but you have to be sincere’.
Young Jewish men watching music at Lag BaOmer in Stamford Hill yesterday.
It was raining heavily and I heard the music coming down across the park and along the River Lea. Nobody was out, apart from commuters driving home, but the Jewish community were out singing and watching these teenage boys play music on the balcony at a local school.
