I am from Midlothian, and started writing poems about people I once knew,
people I still know and about life as I see it from 1980. I love life in the physical world.
Examples of Poetry
Who are the Scots?
David Dale (1739 - 1806) Mill owner and Philanthropist. With Richard Arkwright (the Englishman who pioneered industrial spinning) built cotton mills across Scotland. His son-in-law, Robert Owen, who became the utopian pioneer of the co-operative movement, partnered him in running his most famous mill at New Lanark, the new-town experiment in social engineering which Dale created in 1785.
