About six years ago, on the holy island of Lindisfarne in a 500-year- old house owned by the community of Aiden and Hilda, I began to write a book ... about my own spiritual journey; a book about questioning life and the world when the reality of our lives become unravelled by the circumstances of our lives. How we hold together who we are; the way we see the world, our spirituality, our understanding. How can we come to a place of being woven when everything feels so unravelled. It’s been a long time coming.
