A friend of mine (a colleague) recently asked me to “explain” disempowerment.
Another dear friend of mine (diagnosed with dementia) has written about: “Prescribed Disengagement”.
It has struck me that: a very fine colleague, and a very fine friend, represent today a wide spectrum of understanding.
Kate Swaffer visited Scotland this summer and kindly took great trouble (Kate and her husband Peter had to rearrange their travel plans) to meet with me in Bridge of Allan.
I am not one for accolades, triumphalism, or plinths, but for me Kate deserves all.
