Back from Scotland. Oh yes. What times we had, damiancugley and I and a variable number of mothers and their husbands and dogs. Visiting remote farms full of fancy ducks, hairy cows and black mud. Investigating castles, follies, and a weird churchyard by the sea. Listening to the mournful calls of curlews in the great moss across the braided sand of the estuary alongside Crinan Canal. Crannochs in Loch Awe drifting off into the enveloping mist, pale on on water invisible except where ducks swim, tethered by their black reflections ...

That said, hurrah for cities, yay for people, and, most of all, yes! The internet. It tells me that the mild irritation I suffered on the Glasgow-Oban train could have been so much worse; brings me marstokyo splattering blood around McDonalds; tells me where to find naked folk singers, and that Michael Stipe is best served with milk, while Colin Firth goes better with coffee (context - where you can also find Thom Yorke with cocoa dribbling down his face, and Alanis Morissette buried up to her neck in corn).

When I was away I could feel my awareness of the world shrinking, I tell you. Shrinking.
