‘TREFAN Mo­rys is the name of my house in Wales, and I’ll tell you frankly, to me much the most in­ter­est­ing thing about it is the fact that it is in Wales. I am emo­tion­ally in thrall to Welsh­ness, and for me Trefan Mo­rys is a sum­ma­tion, a metaphor, a par­a­digm, a mi­cro­cosm, an ex­em­plar, a mul­tum in parvo, a demon­stra­tion, a so­lid­i­fi­ca­tion, an essence, a reg­u­lar epit­ome of all that I love about my coun­try. What­ever be­comes of Wales, how­ever its char­ac­ter is whit­tled away down the gen­er­a­tions, I hope my small house will al­ways stand in trib­ute to what has been best in it.’
