Each place, each time, waymark the stories of our lives. Like a pebble plucked from a beach, or a feather caught on a sleeve, we carry them with us, wishing to hold on to something that has passed.

    • Hey Eoin – thanks, and I can hear the Orcadian through your words – you’re settled in up there then, and what a lovely place to settle! I was up there in 2017 and keen to get back, but aye, the hill has been a draw for me for several years now – set me on a journey: a key that has unlocked a door into the landscape. Thanks so much for getting in touch!
