SIXTEEN DAYS TO COUNT

Everyday it is going a bit better. I stroll around on my crutches. I am staying in the 'Bartholomeus Gasthuis' in Utrecht. This is quite a unique place, in many ways. It was the second place my insurance company offered. It was not hard to decide to go to this place. Almost exactly a year ago I was here for the first time, because I went to a special retreat-weekend, a weekend with... David Brazier... I met David for the first time, here in this 'guesthouse'. In recent years David has been…

Quarantine.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on February 22, 2017 at 13:19 2 Comments
