The world only gets better because people risk something to make it better. — Paulo Coelho

Today: don’t beg, don’t ask. But thank God in silence for your life. — Paulo Coelho

A train journey through heavily wooded countryside, alight at a station almost in the middle of nowhere, a driver in a 4×4 waiting to pick me up.

What do you think of the crosses?

Lunch was in Andrew’s study. One wall lined with books. Books on Judaism, Islam, many many Bibles. The other walls were covered with pictures, icons, and crosses. I do not think I have ever seen so many crosses. An amazing collection of crosses, many many different designs. And pride of place on the desk, Aleph which I had given to Andrew a few days ago,

A bit mystical, referring to Aleph by Paulo Coelho.

Whilst we were talking, directions to staff, meetings to be arranged, calls to be taken from Iraq and US.

I came away with a gift from Iraq.
