How our paths crossed?
I watched the documentary on which Mac featured, and as I listened, I was drawn to Mac. Some similarities, but mostly the wisdom and gentle inner peace he portrayed. I reached out, and following a phone conversation I was soon in a car to the edge of Dartmoor in February 2020. We sat in his infamous cabin, with the robins, and talked about life. It was obvious that there would be more cross over between us, starting with an article for the Journal.
What is Mac’s Soulhub Journal Collective offering?
Mac writes about ‘Dusk’, from the early days of lockdown on 9 April, how we’re in this position, how we’re coping and his deep embrace of this earth.
