Contains a reflection for each of the 365 days of the year (each entry approximately one page long), celebrating holy days and holidays, feast days and famous days of the past and glimpses into the future. It marks accomplishments of yesterday that call the reader to live well tomorrow and points out "pedestrian" prophecies of the past, off-target predictions that show the folly of forecasting, especially those predictions that limit our possibilities. This is not a one-year almanac but will take ten years to digest its wisdom and wit.While debunking prophets of gloom and doom, The Old Hermit's Almanac does challenge readers to change themselves, to examine themselves for any narrowness off heart and mind, any prejudices, injustice or lack of faith, for a leisureless lifestyle that squeezes out silence, a sense of meaning, Compassion and playfulness.

Brian Spencer, former Keeper of the Museum of London, was a major scholar of medieval popular culture. He almost single-handedly established the study of pilgrim souvenirs and secular badges. He defined what these objects were and ascertained their function, manufacture, style, and iconography with a careful use of primary documents and intricate stylistic analysis. He identified every major souvenir and badge discovered in Great Britain during the last few decades. He also made prominent contributions to the field of seal matrices, gaming pieces, and horse paraphernalia. What bound all of these interests together was his understanding that the study of these artefacts could shed light on the beliefs and practices of a large number of people. This is reflected in the frequency with which his work is cited. This volume is a collection of essays written by those who worked with Brian directly and those with whom he corresponded.

The course first to be taken for the discovery is to bear directly to Cape Race, the most southerly cape of Newfoundland; and there to harbour ourselves either in Rogneux or Fermous, being the first places appointed for our rendezvous, and the next harbours unto the northward of Cape Race: and therefore every ship separated from the fleet to repair to that place so fast as God shall permit.
