Bio: Newly retired from 'going out to work for someone else' - now working for myself and my Maker. Someone once coined the phrase 're-tyred for service' I like that. Not thrown on the scrapheap but being useful in a different way. I enjoy pointing out remarkable things to friends. Events that happen, sights and sounds that delight - or possibly provoke other reactions? Words, pictures, music are a large part of my life here in beautiful Scotland. A Jesus-follower I consciously include him in all my days' events by way of an inner conversation. Maybe this has a lot to do with living alone? My thought processes are frequently uninterrupted and lengthy. I have a grasshopper mind by way of engaging in many interests including nature, photography, music, art, craft, words (reading and writing) history, cooking . I have possibly forgotten some. This blog is a record of the 'crossing points' in life as I see it in 21st century Scotland and then maybe sometimes a word on the 'bits in between' the ordinary and hum-drum moments that we all experience, viewed through the lenses of what may be called a quirky mind. I don't worry if you hop in and out of the journey or stay with me for the long haul. let's see what we find on the way.
