    Isobel Lane, 03 September
    re. the Skyspace. I am eagerly looking forward to BYM in York to have the chance to worship in the Skyspace. Because of depressive illness I have varied experience of darkness. It seems to me that even at what appears to be the very last a glimmer appears which holds me. If darkness was completely without light it would have to be a vacuum, i.e. containing no photons. We are told that "nature abhors a vacuum" i.e. that a vacuum is impossible in nature on this planet at any rate
