Giles Fraser in the Wilderness

And after his baptism, Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by a non-existent being that was a kind of personification of evil in a very real sense.

And St Giles came over to him and said, "Jesus - you're OK. There's nobody here...."

Which made the whole thing a bit of a farce really.


  1. I have a confession to make. I know it is out of fashion to confess in public (or at all), but: whenever I hear Giles Fraser on the wireless (and that is really quite often these days) I imagine that he is Archdruid Eileen. And when I read posts announced by Archdruid Eileen I hear them in my head in Giles Fraser's voice. It is a weakness.

    Yesterday in the morning, rising up a great while before day, Newton Purcell and I were going down from Luton Airport to home when we fell amongst stationary traffic. A sign was shewed to us (it was an orange diamond) so we undertook an impromptu dawn pilgrimage to Husborne Crawley. It all makes so much more sense now.

  2. I'm surprised he could get a cab to take him south to the river.
