So, I'm trying to write about something other than mother. It's quite tricky...especially as she lived here with us so it feels a bit like she hasn't really gone yet. All her stuff is still here for a start.
Anyway...how about this? If you go here you can find some old words of mine (a poem/song called 'The Angus Adoption Song') that have been give a new tune by a Montrose singer/musician/songwriter called Gary Anderson. Gary is a member of several local bands (Heidrum and others) and will be on stage at several gigs as part of the Montrose Music Festival (on here this weekend).
I wrote the words for this one (find them on my website under 'songs' if you want to read them) a few years back because Angus really is a very beautiful place but it's not well-known as parts of Scotland go. Here, for example, is Elephant Rock (just down the coast from us a little...and thinking about it a little while later I think I've probably posted this photo before...brain not working very well this week...):
I've really loved the eight years we've lived in this county. Can it really be eight years? Where did the time go..? (Looks in mirror...oh, that's where it went...).
A Magical Experience.
