I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down

Blog of the Week #6 – Wandering Scribe

I think I’ve found a real corker this week.

Well, I say that I found it, but really I stumbled across this one via Lithaborn via Ditch Monkey (where she did a guest post a week or so ago).

Here’s what I know: Wandering Scribe is a homeless girl who lives in a car parked on a lane near some woods somewhere around London. She is intelligent (she studied law at university) and she is articulate but she is also heart-stoppingly vulnerable.

I urge you to go and have a look. I think she writes absolutely beautifully, and she is a voice calling out from a place where people like you and me don’t often hear voices. I think she deserves to be heard.

Do I need to say anything else? Go and discover her for yourselves.

    Wow. Reading her blog has made me feel stone cold. I don't know how she is surviving.
