"After taking our first Promise, it's time to get photographed in a gandoura.
Mine was W.A.Y too big, and I'd got the 'flu—so I really didn't want to pose
for these.  I needed to be in bed with fluids and paracetamol. Sometimes,
our Rector here made inflexible decisions that ignored commonsense
Only rarely . . .  but if a person is contagious . . . . duh-uh !! "

"And after leaving, old ties of friendship, love and having
shared a journey of discernment remain forever.

Visiting Oak Lodge, two years after leaving,
to pray with the community on the occasion of an Ordination
—well the social afterwards. Here is Linda, the excellent cleaner
and domestic worker, as much a part of the family as any of us."
