The Battle

[Continuing the hymn-for-Sundays series] The One and only God, so holy, Creator of the universe; but evil spirits stir up hatred … keep them (people) running from his friendship … He’ll send them (the evil spirits) packing to their prison …

The Malverns

Bare, windswept hills… iconic skyline of the Malvern hills, peaked ridge, seen from afar – natural ‘dyke’ between two cultures …

My mother-in-law, nearly 95,

I'm not sure if I read this

Posted on Sun, 03 Aug 2014

I'm not sure if I read this before, but if so, I think if so I must have done so too quickly. I have now caught its picture more clearly, and really feel how it has captured much of both worlds quite simply, and effectively.

Posted on Sat, 26 Jul 2014

I enjoyed your journey among the changing shades. Your spaces are much more vast than in England's farms and countryside, I think.
