Read more about September's Roundabout


Thank you to everyone who has submitted articles in the last few monthse. We have had a fabulous flurry of words from you which enables us to keep producing a packed magazine of fresh articles. If we have any keen artists or cartoonists out there, please get in touch as we would love to introduce some new cartoons to Roundabout too. 

This month some of our content focuses on Steps Eight and Nine. I always remember the sound advice, “The Steps are in order for a reason.” Seeing early on that I was supposed to make a list of all the people I had harmed AND then make amends to them filled me with dread! But Alcoholics Anonymous is to be trusted and there is a Programme for a reason, with seven other Steps in front of my dreaded number eight. By the time I reached it, I was ready and able. Let’s not forget that Step Eight is only asking us to make the list too - another lesson of keeping it in the day and not jumping too far ahead. 

The Steps taught me to pay attention to the task in hand and not let myself misinterpret (a character defect). Similar to Step Eight - which only asked me to make the list - Step Nine asks me to make amends to them where possible, but does not say “immediately” or “within the month”. Just like AA is a Programme for the rest of my life, my list of amends is there with me for as long as I need to get them done and inevitably add more along the way! 
Hopefully you enjoy our latest issue - do let us know the stories you identify with.
