terry waite

Yesterday I drove up to Winteringham Community Hall to listen to Terry Waite speak and read from his latest book as part of this year’s Ryedale Festival‚Äč.

The setting was fabulous, the weather glorious and Terry’s words were incredibly thought provoking. How he coped during and after his captivity as a hostage for five years, was the subject of many questions from the audience.

It was a privilege to hear him speak, his wise words on how our minds cope in times of extreme stress were fascinating, what an incredible man.
