When I am writing I like to have an image of the person I am describing or writing about. My latest attempt is a book called Ego Sum and it traces the life of a man, born noble, enslaved, escaped and restored to family and friends, who then gave it all up to serve his God and Saviour. So these two sketches are my attempt to depict him in the role of slave and shepherd and in later life as the Bishop he became.
