Saturday 15 August 2015 – Reflecting

I hardly ever watch television, but at the moment it is providing distraction, entertainment, food for thought. As I write today’s blog, the 70th Anniversary of VJ Day is being broadcast from Horse Guards Parade. Another occasion where we are invited to remember and to reflect on and learn from the past.

A friend prepared me for these days of recovery by giving and lending books to read and a CD to listen to. We often share books between us, sometimes passing a title back and forth as one of us has need of it.

This morning I dipped into David Adam’s ‘Tides and Seasons’, landing particularly on these words:

In the opening of a book,
In the looking at a film,
In the listening to music,
Speak, Lord,

For your servant listens.
