Why you’ll never be a prophet in your hometown

I read David Owens’ book “Creative People must be stopped” as part of a University course.  It makes fascinating reading, and, some say, applies to me!  I lived and worked in Thurso, Caithness, for many years, at Dunnet Head, the most northerly point of the UK mainland.  Dunnet Head was not, and is still not, recognised as the most northerly point.  However, I believe that with the support of the RSPB who now own part of the Head, it could be. I hope this can be the case.  I got very creative with dealing with the Council, local “enterprise” company and even VisitScotland.

The Hispanic Society of Carrickfergus is also taking off.  There is so much interest in Spain in Ireland, it’s amazing.  Talks, tours, events, Spanish classes.  It’s all happening!  Creative thinking at its best…History, culture, walking . what more do you need in life?!
