U.S. world-title trials in Indy; Euro Juniors in Netanya (preview tomorrow); French Open; Scottish nationals … a fine line up for the week ahead but on the scales of the heart and romance, look no futher than the Islands Games. “On the Tyne, Forth and Cromarty; There’s a low in the high Forties” … “Rockall. Malin. Dogger. Finisterre. Faroes.” And on through the night, the eyes and ears of Saints Peter and Andrew as they watch over the gatherers of fish. – Carry me on the waves to the lands I’ve never been,
Carry me on the waves to the lands I’ve never seen. – Enya – Orinoco Flow
