I began this blogging web site, discussing novels, poems, stories etc., as a way or doing something purposeful through Lockdown. Being around Easter when I started, this is my first theme. I have chosen a series of poems as well as the Journey to Emmaus story from the gospel of St. Luke. Following each there is a Comment. I hope you will find these blogs stimulating, thought- provoking and interesting. As I chose material, I was struck by the particular relevance to our present experience of Lockdown. The T. S Eliot poem “The wounded surgeon plies the steel” is a notable example.

Please feel free to join me and also to add your comments.

Welcome to the site and happy reading!
