I recall the following conversation with David in his offi ce in Wilbur Hall:DP: Read about Cuthbert and the onions. PD: Cuthbert? Who is he? Oh yes, I think you recommended him sometime
ago. DP: A monk. A very important guy. Lived on an island off the east coast
of northern England. Lindisfarne. It’s a holy island, you know. Monastic living and all that.
