  1. I believe the sunshine and approaching Easter has given you a very deep and poetical feeling, Gwil!! The rapid movements of darkness makes it all the more important to share light and life. And the hope you bring with the story of this man, he couldn't be silenced, no. So Jesus said, that not even the stones and rocks could be silenced if ever we stopped calling on to God. It took me quite a few years to grip that reality. I like your blog, your approach keep me alert!!
