Of late i’ve been trying to keep busy in order to keep my mind from the news. Afghanistan is nothing short of an utter catastrophe. I know not what fate has befallen those that became my friends.
As ever i have taken to the hills. I always have. My church. My salve. A place to wander and listen and see. I’ve done some teaching which is a good and worthwhile distraction, and of an evening i’ve focussed on finding the tiniest points in the middle-of-nowhere on a map, worked out my strategy and set off across a sea of purple heather for places unknown. Repeatedly.
