Home again from a trip to Cambridgeshire to consult with Dr. Graeme Lawson on his boat on the River Nene, moored up against the reeds in fenland and with the aid of a couple of beers. Immersed in the intricacies and depths of High Pasture Cave when not being frowned upon by swans, buzzed by a kingfisher, or gathering the hugest ripest brambles overhanging the river. At my daughter and son-in-law's we finished off the revisions to a film script. Happy family days.
Soon off to see Return to the Voice at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe - the outcome of the Polish Song of the Goat Theatre group's visits to Scotland and study of Scottish traditional music. They came to Skye to consult and we all had a wonderful time sharing cultures. www.returntothevoice.com
