GROUP

Posted by David Brazier on January 11, 2019 at 9:43 2 Comments

F would meet me in Spain and take me back to stay with him in a village near Vittoria.…

I have been a bookworm ever since I learnt to read, which was not until I was seven years old. By that time I had already had important spiritual experiences. I was a rather odd child. Many ideas went through my head that tended to set me apart from other children.
