The Good Samaritans

I am intrigued and moved by the image currently being used in Samaritans' publicity.

It reminds me of something I was compelled to create during my troubled teens at boarding school in the depths of Norfolk.

Many years later I was equally compelled to reach out to The Samaritans myself. I was given a calm and sensible ear in the middle of a horrendous night. I was encouraged to recognise and appreciate my personal strengths, though I hesitated to put that advice into action for quite a while. It was a rough ride at times, but I think I got there in the end.
