Summer in Scotland: tales of a personal pilgrimage
For three weeks this summer my husband and I walked the breadth of the country, from Iona in the Inner Hebrides, off the west coast of Scotland, to Lindisfarne, off the east coast of England: linking one holy island to the other, step by step by step.
Three hundred miles!
I did not take photos, and I did not write a journal, at least not in my usual word-rich and thought-filled style. Instead, I painted one watercolour image a day, in a tiny little book that fitted in the palm of my hand.
I invite you to take a look at the daily paintings and read some of the things I noticed and noted (mostly in brief but at times more loquaciously) in my blog, by clicking on any of the large images below.
Spiritual Director, musician and poet.
What gives depth and delight to life more than finding out who we really are and expressing that in all authenticity? This seems to me to be the reason for our existence, and it is only in relationship with others and with God that this becomes really possible.

Spiritual Direction is an invitation to spend time together exploring your innermost (and outward) experiences of life, including your longings, your hopes, your relationships, your ambitions, joys and fears and ... whatever in fact it is that you want to bring to conversation. Together we take "a long loving look at the real', as Walter Burghardt so tenderly put it, which for me includes where body, soul and spirit meet: where God is, whatever that means for you.
But you don't have to be clear about your religious faith (or indeed have any connection with religion at all) to want to seek something spiritually deeper, and you are welcome whatever your background or current practices and interests are.
I am also available to lead retreats and quiet days.
