Has the snow and cold hurt? No, it has enhanced. No streets are cleared, there is ice everywhere, but we walk boldly forward--our eyes up to see the dark spires of the university buildings, and darting here and there to catch sight of the birds -- magpies, sleek and fat, crows, and seagulls! Yes, seagulls, some very diminutive delicate ones. And bushes bristling with small brown, blue-breasted titmouse birds, enchanting in their energy and beauty.
HIGHLIGHT so far is the Glasgow University Chapel of which you will see photos below. Built following the Great War it was created in the Medieval style, and lovingly executed by masters whose heart-felt efforts can be felt in wood and stone: Imagine such an opportunity in the 1920's!
OF SPECIAL NOTE: I DID see my FIRST FOX on the cold streets of Glasgow,walking to the subway last night. He walked, or rather glided, a few feet in front of our path.
The pulse of a quiet and different world . . .
