Isolated in the City


All of my adult life has been spent in rural places often time in remote parts of Scotland.

I am disappointed that I am still not settled in England after all these years. It is certainly a hindrance. Also so many things have been against me which have added to my unsettlement.

Anyway, we currently live in a popular city. My experience of city living is that it is isolating.

People often come up to me and say how isolating it must have been living up in the Scottish Highlands. It certainly wasn’t my experience. We had Neighbours who were in and out of the manse. We also had a good community. When we were out and about, we would always bump into somebody and start chatting.

In the City, nobody wants to talk to you. If you greet them on the streets, they give you funny looks.
