I think this deserves a separate post –
Twelve months ago – SIX months ago – if someone had told me I’d soon count a nun as a very dear friend and confidante, I would have said they were nuts.
I’m not a church guy.
But somehow, Sister Clare has stepped into my life. And she’s had a profound impact.
She’s now an integral part of this blog. And I think I speak for everyone when I say that she has brought wisdom, insight, compassion, and an irreverent humour to her writings here.
Next April, she will be my guest on a pilgrimage tour from Porto to Santiago.I know she’s wanted to walk the Camino for some time, and this will be, in a small way, my way of thanking her for being who she is. And for the work she’s done, and continues to do – here on this blog and elsewhere.
I’m looking forward to this time with her. She is a remarkable woman and I hope to learn from her. And to have fun with her!
So Sister, on behalf of everyone here on this blog – we love you, and
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATE!
