Corca Dhuibhne with its huge expanses of mountain, sea and sky, its ancient cultural heritage, musical language, and rooted, rural community.
... but, as I'm writing this, St. Paul's Cathedral's closed to the public. In the last couple of weeks I've watched the peaceful growth of the protest camp in the square outside it. I've listened to the arguments for and against its presence there. And I've kept asking myself what I think.
Hospitality's so highly-valued here it's practised like an art. Or maybe a religion. There are ritual greetings and responses. Ways of asking and receiving. And an ancient belief that the stranger at your door could be god wandering the earth. So everyone's door was always open here, even to strangers.
Basically, sharing's an inherited tradition. But it's bad manners to ask your neighbour for more than he can give.
So, that's my answer. I believe in protest and public debate. I believe that public spaces should be used to raise personal awareness.
But I think the protesters outside St. Paul's Cathedral should say thanks now, and go home.
By doing so they wouldn't just be demonstrating for a better way of doing things. They'd be demonstrating how it might work.
