Dear Wen: But ‘n’ Ben…

Dear Wen…

Amra Columcille is the thread and rather fittingly it will allow us to bring in some of the Minahane stuff.

That makes me very happy.sheffield book weekend 159

Curious, isn’t it how true genius is never recognised in its time largely, perhaps because the establishment by its very nature has neither the desire nor the scope to dream…

I noticed that the murals from Helmsley didn’t quite make it into But ‘n’ Ben… maybe they were never meant to…

Nick Birds SE Ilkley 2015 uffington avebury cropton Helmsley 046I already have a number of possible ways into the story of Bean Sidhe, none of them orthodox all of them utterly unacceptable on so many levels…

We may have to do a little more planning than usual for this trip though.

It might not be quite so easy to rock up on spec and get a couple of beds in what is after all now a foreign country not that it is all that easy in our own country god bless its ‘terrorist’ obsessed heart…

We could do a bit of that planning over the weekend so that at least we have a direction and a number of goals to head for… and some corresponding stop-overs…

Iona, unfortunately, may be an island too far for this one at least…

scotland trip jan 15 708I’d quite like to explore the islands as a whole trip in itself by ‘hopping’ anyway…

The name Adam’s Grave is familiar though without being immediately ‘place able’ and yes, it does pretty much fit the theory… quite nicely in fact…

Cole is a mainstay of Watkins so no real surprise there…

The White Horses are beginning to look like excessively well placed icons are they not… and especially so when one takes into account the undulations of the attendant landscape features.013 - Copy

The Beast as I shall never tire of explaining is an utter drama queen.

It doesn’t have any taste… just an appetite… which is all consuming like a couple of other concepts which suddenly spring to mind… Down Boy!

Love,
