Blog entries have been rather thin on the ground lately. In part, this has been due to unusually large amounts of work over the summer (not that I’m complaining!). But recently my busy-ness has been compounded by the fact that I managed to crack a rib (the second time in six months) while on retreat at Alnmouth Friary. So for the past few weeks life has been lived through a codeine-induced haze – a condition not conducive to working efficiently, never mind thinking of things to put on the blog.
Perhaps the most annoying thing about the cracked rib is that it has prevented me from taking part in a performance of Handel’s Semele in Aberdeen next month. If you are in Aberdeen on Sunday 19th September, do go along to support it. It is taking place at St Andrew’s Cathedral, King Street and is in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
