    Will Tŷ Mawr, not William Morgan but the former custodian of the house that saw William Morgan (Esgob) to birth: As we sat in his kitchen at Wybrnant he recalls ‘they keep bringing us bibles – what do we want with them here?

    My offering for tomorrow, reflection on a year past and hope for a brighter one to come! To lament a leaf… How empty stands the winter tree, once with a canopy full of leaves.
