Talking to the Wall

Quotes "It is educational and provocative and spiritual and sometimes just downright funny."
Sue Tourkin-Komet Jerusalem
"Walls only lose their power when we transcend their physical boundaries… Colum and Sharon use the wall as a prop to lean on, to talk across. Here is the meeting place of wide horizons, the transcendent intelligence of the heart."
Lesley-Ann Wilson Belfast
