    On Iona
    Ah! A week's grace at a turning of the year. Soon Gordon and I will be on the road across Mull, passing by these hills and lochs.

    The other night Stella Lau said we all looked tired. It was one of those moments when you stop and realise, yes, she's right, I am. Iona Community Week isn't exactly a retreat, but I hope I may escape, make space, get time enough alone to catch up with myself and engage with Zygmunt Bauman's Globalization: The Human Consequences and John Belchem's Merseypride: Essays in Liverpool Exceptionalism.

    A kind gift from All Hallows will pay for a copy of the new Iona Abbey Music Book, and all of that will keep me going for a week. That, and good company and Scotch whiskey. If there's blog capability on Iona you may hear from me this week. I doubt it, though. I doubt I'll even see the England game up there, but hey. I'll be back on the 18th. Meanwhile, check out excellent pic series of Iona at meish dot org.
