Some people speculate that our thinking is often metaphorical. This picture is one that is so full of metaphor to me and each time I look at it something else speaks to me. In the background you can see the listening posts, we use that picture at the children’s hospital to talk about someone always listening and always there to hear our prayer. The sheep in the foreground offer so many connections for someone who is a priest. The cliff edge, the faint paths, a lone walker, the patterns of sheep. It is the sort of picture I can look at regularly and ask myself what I need to learn from it today.
