Suggestion Box

Your thoughts and comments are always welcome.


  1. A meditation class would be great!

  2. Thank you for the suggestion, the first one to have been made. Apologies for delay in responding to it. You see, I have become so used to there being nothing in the Box that I only rarely check.

    'A meditation class'. Something like 'Lectio Divina', or what, I wonder? Could you expand on why such a class would be 'great'?

    The line from Yeats comes to me: 'I meditate upon a swallow's flight'. Looking out my kitchen window recently, I have loved seeing the swallows whirling once more in the evening sky. Hopkins wrote about the kestrel. Letting the mind play with these associations often, for me, amounts to a kind of open-ended meditation. What's your idea of 'meditation'?
