It was a long and painful labour which lasted seventy-two hours. From the day Helen was born, she stayed in Yorkhill, a small area near Partick in Glasgow’s west end. Admittedly it was not the best area to grow up in but there was a real sense of friendship and reliability within her small community. The street Helen grew up in was the only Street in the area with cobbles on the road. Unfortunately no houses stand there any more as it is now part of the Yorkhill fire station now.
A rather dark and disturbing short story written in 1931 by William Falkner, “A Rose For Emily” tells the tale of Emily Grierson, a troubled, and mysterious woman who has always been an outsider in her town. The story begins with the funeral of Emily, who had died at 74. Nobody, except her servant Tobe, had been inside her house for ten years, and the story goes back to this last encounter. Emily had had a special relationship with the town which allowed her to opt out on taxpaying because she couldn’t pay, but the newer generation did not like the idea. This is when the authorities went to her house to ask for payment, and she refused straight out.

My mother did not allow me to go with them because she is the daughter of the desert who has never trusted the sea. However, my father made a great compromise by taking my sister Nora with him to the boat. He was happy that he defeated my mother’s fear of any new experience that her two little daughters might encounter. I remember that they succeeded in separating us from each other for the first time… I cried… I mean I wept! Until this moment I still remember my watering eyes blurring my vision making the view of the boat fading away more and more pathetically sorrowful to a 6 years old girl.
