I know that is appears a year has passed since I added to my blog! Time is an elusive, quick moving thing when it wants to be so and it has choosen that speed for me. Last June – July was filled with my good friends from NY, Diane and Jerry, coming for a visit, a quick trip to my Danish friend, Birgit, for her son’s wedding, volunteering at the Ness of Brodgar archeological dig site and then a planned 2 week visit to the USA. However, due to a nagging and what I now accept as a chronic back condition, I arrived in the USA in severe pain. It was five months before I could return to Stromness following back surgery and a painful recuperation that lingered until nearly the 6 month anniversary of the surgery. However, I am now pain free and very grateful for that.
Pleased that the stones still stand and the sky is still wide. We had 2 brilliant weeks of sun and clouds but since mid week, the gray and wet has returned. It has been somewhat cold, but not like winter. Days have lengthened and if I pull an all nighter, it just never darkens.
