From the Director,
Received this curious message from ‘George’, no surname supplied from
I am writing this from beyond the grave, yes we souls have access to the internet,
the trick is to know the access code.
I’ll be brief; I am here in limbo, between heaven and hell and not at all sure where I am going after this. Though I have been taking classes in ‘forgiveness therapy’ and if I get it ‘forgiveness’ right (for which read truthfully and sincerely), I should get a gold star which will help me in an upwardly fashion; there are several levels to this and ten ‘forgives’ to give for each; childhood, teenage and young adult, senior. Here goes with childhood. And if I have missed anyone out, please forgive me.
1To Arnold, who bent my tree wheeler and never said he was sorry. I forgive you.
2To my dad who put the nappy pin through the nappy, and me. I forgive you.
3To Miss Dixon, who made me sit and eat a plate of cold semolina after all the other kids had gone out to play. I forgive you.
4 To my cousin Andrew who took unwrapped and played with my Christmas present, and broke it’s wheel off. I forgive you.
5 To Mr. Dixon the Dentist. I forgive you.
6 To my brother Brian for a list of things it would take an eternity to mention. I forgive you.
7 To Sandra, who said she would always be my girlfriend, I forgive you.
8 To Robert who laughed when his rabbit peed on me before school. I forgive you and your rabbit.
9 To Thumper Thompson the school bully, for tripping me up in the lunch line and sticking a sausage in my ear. I forgive you.
10 For Eileen, who told me I was too thick to go out with anymore. I forgive you.
