A lovely presence

DSC03363

It’s a pleasure to get to know Lagandorain’s new resident artist. She has settled in and adds to the richness of the north end of Iona in deepest winter. It was warming last night to look out towards Dun I in the still blue blackness and see the spot of human light from the Bothy window. As Norman MacCaig captured perfectly: ‘And everything becomes its setting. Everything shrugs together… Everything’s changed by the human voices carelessly travelling… through the translated kingdoms.’

And the sheep are happy too as they now have a new friend to feed them hay and nuts and to scratch behind their ears, if only they are brave enough.

Enquiries for art residencies for next year are coming in already.
