GIVE JUSTICE TO THE WEAK AND THE ORPHAN;

MAINTAIN THE RIGHT OF THE LOWLY AND THE DESTITUTE.  PSALM 82.3

My  ISIS defying pilgrimage hike out to Runnymede last fall continues to pay dividends. The good folks at the University of York in Yorkshire have seen fit to use one of my images in the interactive display that they created for Worcester Cathedral (burial place of King John and the best royal effigy tomb in all of Britain!). Kudos to Patrick Gibbs and his gang on a job well done!

Not too often that you’re going to see the names of Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Eleanor Roosevelt and mine all on the same poster panel…… and in a cathedral no less! That’s heady stuff!!

Besides having studied in London and our names appearing on the same historical display, the Mahatma and I share one other thing in common. We have both spoken (at different times!) at the Indian Merchants Chamber, Mumbai. (But that’s a whole different story for another day!)

Just steps away from King John’s effigy tomb is the cathedral’s interpretive exhibit. If you’re heading to Worcester this summer check it out!!

I’ll have more to say as the summer progresses concerning the utilisation of my images by other noteworthy celebrants of the 800th anniversary. Stay tuned!
