About

“I don’t want to get married, I want to stay single and let my hair flow in the wind as I ride through the glen firing arrows into the sunset…”

Sounds like a plan! 😉

Most of the images on my blog will be gleaned from the wonderful world-wide web where I do have a habit of getting “lost”. Links will be provided to their sources where possible. Other images will be re-blogs and every now and then I’ll share my own personal pics.

Now to me…

The highlands of Scotland are calling me to come and do a fling…and that’s exactly what I’m going to do…and that would be “fling” as in dance. 😉

Love, love, love French stuff, especially anything to do with Normandie & Paris…

Ireland has captured my imagination and that might be because my patron saint is St Brigid of Ireland, a fiery arrow…that could explain my “thing” about arrows. 😉

New Mexico in the US has my footprints on the land and I plan to return to put down some more – you have been warned Santa Fe, Pecos, Taos and the black bears AND one Koshare. 😉

I’m absolutely obsessed with the sea and anything connected to it, in fact I think I have saltwater running through my veins. 😉

Blue is my favourite colour.

I love all kinds of music except heavy metal. I adore Andre Rieu and his classical style. I enjoy listening to songs by the likes of Christy Moore, it nurtures the radical element of my soul. 😉

I’m a visual person and I love poetry especially anything by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. I have a slightly wicked-borderline-warped sense of humour but I’ll keep that in hand so as not to offend those with delicate tendencies. 😀

  4. Rarely have I seen someone’s personality and spirit leap off the page as vividly as when I read your story. Thanks for visiting my blog and reblogging my latest post. I leave you with one of my late Scottish grandpa’s favorite wisecracks: “Jonathan, your gran is almost 66. I think I’ll exchange her for two 33’s.”

    ”The sun is set; and in his latest beams
    Yon little cloud of ashen gray and gold,
    Slowly upon the amber air unrolled,
    The falling mantle of the Prophet seems.
    From the dim headlands many a light-house gleams,
    The street-lamps of the ocean; and behold,
    O’erhead the banners of the night unfold;
    The day hath passed into the land of dreams.
    O summer day beside the joyous sea!
    O summer day so wonderful and white,
    So full of gladness and so full of pain!
    Forever and forever shalt thou be
    To some the gravestone of a dead delight,
    To some the landmark of a new domain. ”

    Good luck with your blog!

      Hmmm Devon…I have a French connection too, from the Normandy area…so who knows what the Duke and his army got up to after they landed in Hastings. 😉 Glad you enjoyed. Cheers.

  11. hi there Per Mare, very nice blog you have here, and I’ve just enjoyed listening to Audrey Hepburn & Moon River (is there anything sweeter?) via your link. I shall follow and return. I’m from Ireland but I read above you also like all things of Northwest France and of the sea. So I thought you might enjoy this: and the sailing post immediately before and after. Hope you find it amusing at least. My very best regards- Arran.

      Ahoy there Arran, glad you liked Audrey, the song is a gem. I do love the Normandie region of France, no reason in particular. I now know where to go to hear tales of adventure and the sea. Cheers. 🙂
