Children face a mental health crisis, but they need more than antidepressants

14 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

I was still a child when I read Prozac Nation, die 1994 depression memoir by Elizabeth Wurtzel. It was probably inappropriate for a tweenager, but thankfully no one ever monitored what I checked out of the library. Op ...

Proper old-style weddings are back – and they’ve been worth the wait

12 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

I went to a wedding at the weekend. That shouldn’t be a remarkable statement, but of course it is. It’s been a strange summer: the promise of normal life returning hasn’t quite materialised. Instead it has felt tentat...

A shared Olympic gold defeats the ‘one champion’ narrative

22 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

“Can we have two golds?” Mutaz Barshim of Qatar’s words during the men’s high jump competition, spoken to the friend with whom he was tied in first place, Italy’s Gianmarco Tamberi, have surely marked one of the most ...

Wales’ eerily beautiful slate quarries are getting the recognition they deserve

28 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

“The slate quarries are beautiful,” a friend told me, having returned from a holiday in Gwynedd, where I grew up. “They are not so beautiful when your ancestors died in them,” I said, half-joking just to see her face....

Freedom of speech? Not these days, if you’re an artist in Britain

22 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

One of the many things that studying history taught me, and which I have never forgotten, is how to recognise the typical characteristics of fascism. It’s become a sort of mental list to which I turn from time to time...

The pandemic halted hugging. Can we ever embrace it again?

28 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

With the prospect of the further easing of pandemic restrictions, following Monday’s announcement of the government’s intention to relax social distancing rules in England on 19 Julie, I’ve been thinking about the retu...

Do aliens exist? I think we have enough on our plate already

45 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

As kind, I loved unsolved mysteries, and I’m not talking about detective novels. I’m talking about those big, fat, cheaply printed volumes you could buy from Woolworths which anthologised everything from the Mary C...

‘It’s not like you were in a war, love’: the ignorance surrounding an MP with PTSD

32 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

At the beginning of the pandemic, I reread Mrs Dalloway. I wasn’t the only one – something about the novel seemed to resonate; as Evan Kindley noted in the New Yorker last April, the spectre of Spanish flu hangs subtl...

Calorie counts are coming to British menus – and they’re the last thing we need

51 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

I sort of imagined myself coming out of lockdown like a phoenix rising from the ashes: slim, well-rested, healthy, glowing – my most beautiful self, essentially. In plaas daarvan, I have wild, almost waist-length hair and a ca...

‘Snowdon’ may have its own beauty, but Yr Wyddfa is the name I’ll be using

47 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

It has been well over a year now since I last laid eyes on Yr Wyddfa, the mountain that presided over my childhood, and which the English call Snowdon. I could draw the shape of that peak with my eyes closed. Jan Morr...

It’s time to recognise the women who’ve kept the UK going during Covid

83 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

That so many women have found feminism is something to celebrate this International Women’s Day. During the late 1990s and early 00s, the era in which I grew up, we were told that the fight for gender equality was ove...

We’ve been hibernating with our sorrow, but nature won’t let us grieve forever Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett

56 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

I’ve been trying to think of songs about spring, but the ones that have come to mind – Nina’s Simone’s I Get Along Without You Very Well (Except Sometimes), Billie Holiday’s Some Other Spring – are mournful. Perhaps i...
