Despite our new technologies, there’s just something about a book, with its striking cover and pages you can turn forward. And pages you can turn back, of course, if you wish to look at something again. Or pages you can pause at and ponder; perhaps a line takes your breath away, or a simple phrase. That’s the thing about a book: you decide the pace. You can hold it, bath with it and lovingly write your name in it – in fact, it’s a bit like a marriage. If you like truth you can touch, this is the place.

“Children and the Light” by Peter and Elizabeth Fenwick – ALF Rose had this experience many years ago when he was ill with pneumonia as a young child of four or five. Suddenly I was out of my body and floating near the top of the window in my bedroom. I could see myself in bed and my mother kneeling at the side of the bed. She was crying and looked very distressed. I gazed at this scene for a little while and remember that I didn't feel any emotion at all and was completely indifferent to what I saw. Without any warning at all I was travelling very swiftly through a dense forest. Read here
