Bit of a media flurry in the run up to Christmas.  3 articles/ broadcasts you might be interested in:

From a Canadian Radio Station (Lily Ames) .  Scroll down to Episode 9: where grace happens. - Really fascinating conversation with Lily Ames resulted in this broadcast.  Worth hanging on for the second half of the programme (I go first) which is about a woman who turned her recruiting skills to help ex-prisoners & recovering addicts find work.

2015 was the year of Reuters, in the person of a young independent photo journalist (Neil Hall) who hoped to be able to offer the story to Head Office in Singapore. He was prepared to duck & dive around my most debilitating treatments and eventually produced a mash-up of hermitage highlights in which Mrs Hennypenny is pleased to be playing a starring role.  There are two short videos:  the first is here

Rasen Mail: Report by Jason Hippisley


For my first 5 years as a hermit, I was here incognito.   Solemn Profession is however, necessarily, a public occasion, and since that time there has been occasional media interest in the life of a “modern day hermit”.  These articles/links are presented in reverse date order.
