I will be off to Eastbourne to meet His Hermeneuticalness himself, Fr. Finigan, as well as excellent PP of Chistlehurst, Fr. Briggs, and the lofty PP of St. Mary Magdalen in Brighton, Fr. Blake! I am not sure if there will be others, but it should be a pleasant day trip. I may overnight in Brighton at the parish if it get’s late and come back to town on the morrow.
On the way. After a brisk walk to Streatham Hill and a two minute wait I now am parked on the platform of beautiful Clapham Junction Station for Eastbourne.
Most train stations are the same aren’t they? The sounds and smells and characters call to mind my years of stressed commuting.
