FEBRUARY "Behind us our footprints lead back to the imperfections of knowledge and the frailties of our human world." (from "Song of the Rolling Earth, a Highland Odyssey" by John Lister-Kaye)

Bamboo For Pandas And Pups Do you remember church/chapel/mosque/synagogue/temple/gurdwara gatherings?  No, I don't mean if, pre-Covid, you attended weekly or more often. If you're that person, then there's probably a large hole in your life. What I mean is, do you remember simply feeling you would go along to the next children's service or join the congregation to mark a personal anniversary or maybe pop into the building in order to light a votive candle? The freedom to worship is closed to all in Scotland and this is one of a raft of restrictions which has been launched for us during the last year. I'm not arguing - I think we can beat this virus as long as we don't mingle - and we keep washing our hands. I'm hearing a great deal about those restrictions which directly affect the economy. As a people, we Brits are very wrapped up in the money. I don't hear as much about spirituality - I don't mean mental health - they are not the same thing at all.
