    The Boot three years on. There have been some changes and improvements to The Boot, partly thanks to fund raising and charitable donations, and in part thanks to Christian Edwards benefactor to The Boot. Some 'guests' have moved on, some remaining homeless, but others having been helped are now in independent accommodation either working or looking for work. This is the continued story of The Boot, it's staff and 'guests.'

    It is not necessary to read The Boot beforehand but it may help to understand some of what is happening now and in its future.

    We all like to know the back-story to characters, you know their story before before they appeared in a main story. Confused ? You won't be when you read on, then it will make sense.

    The Major features in The Boot and The Boot - Three Years On, here he features in his own story, before The Boot.

    There is a tissue needed warning!

    This fictional story shows how people from different backgrounds can try to support others in a time of desperation, few real tales of homelessness have a happy ending.

    It is written as a tribute to those who in the past and present have given and continue to give either time, money or other support to homeless shelters across the globe. Also in the hope that it will inspire others to do so in the future in whatever small way that they are able.

    Can you help?

    A short about death, The Last Goodbye, as possibly seen from being on a different plane, not the living plane. Not so much a story as an impulse written on waking, something I need to get out of my system. Was it a dream? A vision? A communication from beyond? I don't know, maybe you do.
