In times of darkness.


 We are undoubtedly living through dark and troubling times, but if we don't seek the light and hope what else have we got?

"The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places, but still there is much that is fair and though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater." 

J R R Tolkien

"The Spirit of Brotherhood" sculpture is by Bernard Meadows.
