I would go on - especially I would quote probably extensively from the two books I've discovered this week from the Edinburgh-based Pocketbook series; one a book of poems from Scots insider/outsiders and the other a book of people's dreams for a new Scottish Parliament (published on a wave of cultural activity in the fateful year 2000). But I won't, tonight, because I'm in the lobby of Eglington Terrace Youth Hostel and I fear disturbing my snoring roommates upstairs, rummaging for said tomes. Plus, shortly I'll be joining them (roommates and tomes) for a good night's kip.
It's my Edinburgh break from semi-rural bliss at Crinan. Good holiday. Here though, for an Iona Community get-together; which is good too. More, on all of this, no doubt, next week.
