Moon, Music and Term Starts

04 Sep

We missed the Corn Moon in all its fullness on Wednesday as it was cloudy but last night’s moon was glorious.

I have been feeling somewhat discombobulated of late, as I think many are in these unsettling times. The following piece ‘Farewell to Stromness’ by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies helps to untangle my wires (as does doing the embroidery or weeding!) It is performed here by Adrian Lord – and what a view he has!

Term has started for our family of LiveWires and for many of my ex-colleagues, one of whom sent me the photo below as he thought I might have done this with the door to my room were I still at the comprehensive school with them all.  Yes, I would!  Well done, Miss Robinson.

I have just read the following comment from Adrian Lord
This was filmed at Crear – a wedding and recording venue on the Scottish West coast, with views over to the islands of Jura and Islay. Crear is a very special place. When I first visited in 2015 I knew this was where I would record my music.

    Lovely music. And it reminds me of our wonderful adventure on the Orkney islands.

    I too, love that piece of music. Ideal for unraveling and soothing discombobulated times

    I love that piece of music, and combined with that landscape …oh! What a beautful way to start the day.
