Description

“Pressed by my editor to write another book, I stood firm. I was confident that four books were more than enough: everything I had it within my power to say had been said. Only a certain amount of what is rumbling around in our heads is worth sharing, and there is only a limited number of ways of rehearsing the same material without becoming tiresomely repetitive. And besides, my last book (Learning to Dance) was very much a final book, the last chapter, on the need to let go in old age and the reality of death, intended as a signing-off.

So much for predicting your own future. Never say never. For, just as M.E. (myalgic encephamyolytis) had come along 20 years ago and hit me in mid-flow, knocked me flat and changed my life, so in the summer of 2005 cancer of the jaw came along and once again sent me spinning. From that icy moment of diagnosis, when you know that everything has changed, I recognised two things. First, that this would prove an unwanted but important test of the integrity of what I most deeply believed, both as a human being and a priest: a kind of inquest on all those words spilled out of pulpits or in counselling others or at hospital bedsides. A few months earlier I had attempted to tease out what I had come to think of as ‘the enduring melody’ of my life. This was the time to see how well it would stand up to the fiercest scrutiny.

Secondly, I felt the need in whatever lay ahead not to waste the experience, but to write about it as honestly as I could day by day, both as a form of therapy and (hopefully) to bring something creative and redemptive out of an inevitably dark time.”
