On Mature Reflection

I dreamed I'd co-authored a book about how I came to leave the Church. I was leafing through the finished article and finding it very glum. My co-author was the Rev Dr John Armson- who was chaplain at my theological college. According to the dream he'd counselled me through the process; in reality (this reality) he had nothing to do with it- though he's someone with whom I've always felt I had some sort of link...

Dissatisfied with the book, I felt I wanted to add a postscript in the form of a Q & A.

Q: How did you feel about leaving the Church?

A: Like Billy the Kid.
