OCH AYE, IT’S BIN A GRAND WEEK – ever, ever so gently, drifting into autumn’s mellow embrace; a drop in temperature but nothing to write home about.

Times are a changing.
CHRISTMAS CARDS – are on sale in the porch – the early bird………
PARISH MAGAZINE – ideal time for ruminating – an ocean of stories out there.
JOHN O’DONOHUE – ‘when you are in harmony, you can take untold pressure. You can carry many burdens with grace. When you suffer, your sense of rhythm deserts you. Perhaps it is only then you become aware of how deeply your life is blessed by unnoticed spontaneity. A natural spontaneity always holds you in the dance of your soul.’
