"This, then is our desert:
to live facing despair,
but not to consent.
To trample it down under hope in the Cross.
To wage war against despair unceasingly.
That war is our wilderness.
If we wage it courageously,
we will find Christ at our side.
If we cannot face it,
we will never find him."

Winter at last
It has been bitterly cold here for several days and today, for the first time this winter, it's snowing.
An appropriate piece of music from Frederick Delius (in an anniversary year -150 years since his birth)
