    I've never told you this, but ...
     
    Got Change the World for a Fiver into a Book of Common Prayer service today, on the strength of it being All Souls / All Saints and Action 35 in the book being this: WRITE TO SOMEONE WHO INSPIRED YOU.

    Got the ladies thinking about which saints / souls inspired them, and, if they had a postcard similar to the one which I pulled out of the book, what they would put on it.

    Dear ................; I've never told you this, but ................

    Got me thinking, now.

    Dear Ant; I've never told you this, but having a posh mate with a snooker room in his house opened up my world to new aspirations at age ten.

    Dear Esther; I've never told you this, but your book gave me a whole new way of seeing. (de Waal, that is)

    Dear Inchy; I've never told you this, but you not only showed me some of the best football moves of the 1980s, you also showed the world that us little men can SHINE. (Adrian Heath, that is)

    Dear Owain; I've never told you this, but your acts of radical rebelliousness all those centuries ago have made tiny Machynlleth a power centre of my world. (Glyndwr, that is)

    Dear U2; I've never told you this, but, putting all the hype aside, you've been a constant inspiration from day one, giving my heart a new language with every song.
