Chvrches are putting Scots tearjerkers back on the map. Here are some more Celtic classics you can drink alone to tonight.
"Isabella Mary Beeton, tireless advocate of the importance of a woman’s role in the home, editor, publisher, mother, wife and example to millions of women - you are to be admired. You were both a woman of your time and also before your time. You highlighted the importance of animal welfare, the use of local and seasonal produce and offered vegetarian choices long before others had even dreamt of these issues. You asked no one to do anything you were not prepared and able to do yourself and your work ethic was a shining example. I can’t help but wonder what you would have accomplished today."
An excerpt from “Women Have Their Reward,” a piece looking at one Victorian woman and how she changed the lives of many, then and today (except most unfortunately, mine.) You can find the article on “A View From Outside The Box,” url: adialogue
