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​.

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.
