Amanda writes “A big thank you to BEMIS for a very enjoyable evening celebrating Multicultural Homecoming on St Andrews Day. Thanks to all the musicians and performers, especially the Scottish traditional musicians, the Hong Loc Lion dancers and Indepen-dance performers, and Glasgow Dholis drummers.
I learned a new recipe too – Edinburgh Fog, very tasty!”
Andrea says “It was a great evening, and really successful fundraising event for the Glasgow Gurdwara. There was a great variety of food, and it was fun to chat about which foods we liked best. I loved seeing the Guru Granth Sahib choir again after their wonderful performance at our Mandela Celebration in July.”
It looks like both events were a lot of fun. Now back to work, ladies!
I recently had the good fortune to visit Iceland for one day, en route to America for a holiday with my partner. It’s a stunningly beautiful landscape.
I wanted to share some pictures of Iceland (although they don’t really do it justice!!). It’s really worth a visit! In the short period of time we spent there, we saw the most diverse landscape. It is literally living and breathing.
We had just experienced a close family bereavement and found this wild and unpredictable landscape of Iceland very emotive. It reminded me that the endpoint is not nearly as important as the journey itself, and if one thing in life is constant, for us and for the land, it’s the inescapable notion of change and renewal.
In Reykjavik airport, this poem is inscribed on the wall:
‘on earth’s part
all days start beautifully
patiently it revolves and revolves
with its trees
and oceans and lakes
deserts and volcanoes
the two of us and the rest of you
and all the animals’
Fox cub in the meadow –I watched a beautiful young cub in the Gardens yesterday evening, cautiously stepping onto the lawn, then dancing around in the meadow; a gift from the Gardens in the evening time.
He’s been spotted in the Gardens a few times. Let us know if you see him!
