From some of the jottings I wonder if she longed for some quieter times in her hectic life as a farmer’s wife with six children. “Silence is the homeland of the strong.” (Tennyson). “To hear the voice of the voiceless, we must be silent before Him...

I noticed how they were each tied up to a very long mooring rope that ran permanently across the estuary bed and back to the shoreline where it was fixed to an anchor ring; this type of mooring allows boats to rise and fall with the tide. We are...

I played in an orchestra very briefly when I was in school, and of course have been to many classical concerts at big venues like the Albert Hall or the Barbican. What I found impressive about this was how immersive it was. They were playing a piece...
