’Still On The Cusp Of Madness’ is a memoir which follows my ‘Altered Perceptions’ diary and describes the redeeming grace way in which I advance, one day at a time ’into the fold’, as a Black lesbian mother with mental health experience, at My London, United Kingdom based, Thames Reach paid full-time employment.

Dear Yvonne,

I have just arrived home after a Meeting for Worship, at my local Brixton and Streatham Quak-er Friends Meeting House. Today I was on ‘Welcoming’ duties – Welcoming folk at the door and door duty. I was late arriving to do my service, because I had overslept. I slept for thirteen hours, last night, after taking my ‘Stella’ Stelazine mental health anti-psychotic sugar-free liquid medication. I have been a member of the British Quakers – Religious Society of Friends for almost two years; after being an attender for twenty-one years. I decided to formally apply to join after the British Quakers discerned that ‘Yes’, it was right to have ‘Same-Sex Equal Mar-riage’. Now I legally can marry ‘C’, the love of my life, in England, Scotland and Wales in my religious place of worship. Last year, I was nominated for the post of Quaker Overseer with re-sponsibility for Pastoral Care. I accepted this three year post and participated in a delightful three day Overseers Training in Selly Oak, Birmingham at the Quaker Study Centre in October 2015; although I am unable to visualise myself as anything other than, Whoopi Goldberg in the film role of ‘Sister Act’.
