And so back to the desk after over a week offline disconnected from phone or wifi, cables or telecommunications, cut off from the world, or rather immersed in it. I have doused my head in the waters of the Atlantic, sang to the Selkies, sampled the fine dining of Cal Mac and received a welcome shot of Vitamin D from the large yellow thing in the sky that made a rare appearance.
The blog seems intact, almost thriving without me (!). The place is a midden of course with Neu Reekie posters everywhere and there seems to have been some kind of party while I was gone. No, really – a big thanks to Kevin for holding the fort and I think there will be more guest editor stints in the future.
Now there’s a massive backlog of material going live today and all this week with exciting new initiatives including the launch of our new gaelic blog; an update on the Songs for Scotland concert and album project and news on the iPoster competition.
