Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

ENTHRONEMENT - ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY

Date: 20th March 2013

ENTHRONEMENT OF ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY

Very excited and anticipating the service tomorrow and thank goodness they aren’t forecasting snow.

 A few seats were allocated by a ballot to the 800 volunteers at the Cathedral and I was lucky enough to get one. Apparently I’m in the South Nave so I’ll probably have a good view of a pillar. However, I don’t mind at all. It appeals to my sense of occasion and history. I’m totally enthralled by the story of Thomas Becket and to think that hundreds of years ago, he too was ordained in the Cathedral. Dr. Welby is a relatively young man, so unless he resigns like his predecessor, I doubt I’ll still be on this mortal coil at the time of the next Enthronement, so I’m thrilled to think I’ll be present at this one.

Naturally, no cameras or mobiles allowed and security very tight, so I won’t be posting any pictures of the occasion but you can watch it on Television.

Interesting coincidence isn't it that a new Pope and a new Archbishop are both installed in this month of March 2013.
