Write Out⤴

from

As anyone who lives in Glasgow will tell you, Glaschu means “dear green place” in Scottish Gaelic. And I feel very lucky to live in a vibrant city that has so many parks. Kelvingrove is the one I visit most, as it is so close to the Uni. Here’s the Uni tower, peeking through the trees in the park.

Autumn Tower

I walk there often, always with my camera. It never fails to soothe my mind as I wander up and down the familiar paths. Often I see a squirrel running freely, like this one:

Sometimes I look at the skyline instead. Glsagow gave this man the freedom of the city. Hmmm.

The Lion and the Unicorn⤴

The lion and the unicorn were fighting for the crown …

A pause in my day to think about today’s Feldgang. The noise of the stonemasons reminded me that this staircase is being repaired.

Lion and Unicorn Staircase

The lion, of course, stands for England; the unicorn for Scotland.

Yet again we need to fight. While there is an imbalance of power, our two nations will never be friends. I think this might be beyond repair.
