Orkney

Sitting here with TSK on 31st August and he ‘encouraged’ me to get started – “Why not just do it!”

So here I am, a few thousand miles from home and ‘miles’ from my familiar temperatures but doing what friend Sam has been suggesting for months (if not years) and starting to blog. Perhaps it is a mineral deficiency in the water here that has affected me (!) or more likely that Orkney appears to be one of those ‘thin places’ with frequent Celtic monastery remains, that has drawn a response to that same creative Spirit of God with which the islands are historically so familiar? Or perhaps it is the encouragement of friends simply to be obedient to that often expessed command to “Write, son of man…” Anyway at last “I have got a round tuit”, and am glad.

More to come but it will probably be when I have more sustainable web access back in the Caribbean. Watch this space…
