That is, the American version, a copy of which I bought way back when I was working at Wessex College of English, around the time I met M. It was a cheapie at the remainder shop, and a nice looking volume it is too.
Lately I have been making use of the Daily Office section — it is 3 Epiphany at the moment by the way — as a frame for my own spiritual exercises. Lest that seems either saintly or pretentious, let me say that I am pragmatically finding this of benefit. I get food for thought, and, doing it as I do just before sleeping, I find my nights in general have been much more restful. No, I don’t mean to say the practice puts me to sleep, but it certainly helps compose the mind.
