Over the years, people have commented, "Why don't you write about your life?" To write a chronological autobiography never appealed to me. Thus, I abandoned the idea until about five years ago when having morning tea with my Byzantium scholar-friend in Sydney. We were discussing some aspect of Classical Roman history when the subject of genius loci (spirit of the place) entered our conversation. On the bus back to my flat in Lane Cove, this idea kept niggling at me. Perhaps, I could write about the places (loci) in which I have lived and the effect of these on my Christian journey, firstly as a child, then as a student, wife, mother, educator, writer, and an admirer of all that is beautiful, as expressed in most music, worship in the Eastern and some Western traditions, literature, painting, people, and the natural world. The result is this book, beginning in a small country town, Cowra, some three hundred kilometres south-west of Sydney, Australia, then to a smaller island, Great Britain, where I lived mainly in Oxford and ending on yet a smaller island in Puget Sound, Whidbey, close to the Canadian border. As well as being influenced by various places, so by people. These include Fr. John Hope of Christ Church St. Laurence, Sydney as a teenager and the Lady Margaret Professor in Oxford, Dr. Rowan Williams when I first arrived in this University City. Perhaps the person who influenced me mostly was not one I actually met in person but came to know through my research. He is the divine Lancelot Andrewes who has been part of my life for more years than I can remember and whose sermons and devotions are embedded in my being. In later years, I have been grateful to the renowned biblical scholar, Fr. Raymond Brown who gave me a fresh and scholarly understanding of the New Testament. Last but not least, has been the Franciscan, Fr. Richard Rohr who has taught me the necessity of non-dualistic consciousness for spiritual growth. As much as places and people have helped to shape me, none has more than the Potter and Pantocrator who has moulded and reshaped this lump of clay constantly in my Christian journey.

Let's say you're a corgi, you know, like the dogs Queen Elizabeth loves. And one back leg is paralyzed, so you use a wheelchair to get around. And let's say your owners, your primaries, think it would be ever so nice to go to London for a week. Sounds nice, if we overlook the paralysis part, right? But then let's say the plane you're on crashes over the Atlantic and you have to swim for it. Now what? Well if you're a really special corgi you'll endure burning aircraft, three-legged swimming in icy waters, and vicious seagulls before you drift to Brighton Beach and then to Buckingham Palace to become known the world over as Oceandog. Translated from the computer program DOGSPEAK, The Kindness of Strangers tells Winnie's story directly from her point of view, spotlighting her ability to overcome the problems associated with paralysis, loss of a parent, extreme attention from the world media, and the awareness of her lack of ego and superego. Winnie's unique adventure will please the entire family with her comments on food, other dogs, and what it's like to live with humans.
