Time to blog?

Yesterday and today I watched Gareth Malone's latest attempt to form a choir - this time in Aylesbury Young Offenders Prison. I found it fascinating and moving, and in particular it took me back to 1981, when I started as a part-time chaplain at Cardiff Prison. That nervousness in me, the sense of suppressed trouble in the prison - and the journey that you are able to make sometimes with individual men. The picture left shows Gareth working with the amazing Lewis. There was a lot in the programme I could understand. It got me thinking again about the blog.
What's more, during the last six months I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis, in the hip and maybe the back. It's meant a few changes in my life, routine etc.  The arthritis means I cannot kind of whiz around as has been my custom doing this that and the other - I have to slow down. So maybe that slowing down also points to taking up the blog again - we'll see.
Any way folks, if you're reading this for the first time, welcome, if you're a former reader, welcome back!
