Blogging from Iona

This comes to you from the computer room of the St. Columba Hotel on Iona. Twelve of us gathered in Glasgow last night and today proceeded from taxi to train to ferry to bus to ferry and all arrived intact, mising only one camera and one pair of glasses among us. Luckily I have contact lenses to spare! We've taken long walks and met lots of people at the Iona Community where we are staying and participated in a welcome service in the Iona Abbey and now, since it's completely light at 10:00 pm, I'm off for another walk.

Green. Green. I am green.

Light at 10:00 pm. Loving that.

My dream is a summer visit to Scotland. Have a great time for me, please...

Ooooh - I'd forgot how much longer the days are that far north. Enjoy your stay on Iona.

I just got to the section of "How the Irish Saved Civilization" where a monastery is established there.
