On Saturday, June 27th, I had a letter published in the Yorkshire Post.
I had been prompted to write by opinions expressed the previous week on the comments by Naz Shah MP about Scarborough. She had some justifiable unhappy memories and was criticised for them.
I have written a number of times about holding on to old thoughts and feelings from childhood, which in adulthood are well passed their sell-by date. These articles can be found on this blog using the word search and also in the books 'Wise Words' by Rita Leaman and 'Are you Chasing Rainbows?' by Alison R Russell.
