In an age of synthetic images and synthetic emotions, the chances of an accidental encounter with reality are remote indeed.
Sometimes we read or hear too much news that makes us fearful or suspicious of others. We can forget that most of the people that we know, or at least encounter regularly, are decent and friendly.
My earliest, most impactful encounter with a book was when I was seven and awoke early on Christmas morning to find Roald Dahl's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' in my stocking. I had never been so excited by the sight of a book - and have possibly never been since!
Human love is often but the encounter of two weaknesses.

To encounter 'Beowulf' is like taking a sledgehammer to a quarry face. You must bang in there.
