Long Time.

Well hello there. It's been a while, hasn't it? ...What do you mean you didn't notice...

Recently my life has become a little more interesting (for me anyway..). I've spent the past 6 weeks extending and prolonging my stay on Iona. I came for 2 weeks, and after 6 I'm still here, and planning on going home in 2 weeks time...I'll be heartbroken to leave.

For the first time in my life I know what love is, I think Iona, breathe Iona, soak it into my skin, and the people I meet here soothe me like the cool Hebridean air. For the first time in my life I feel at home, and only curse the fact that it's so far from my real life, my mundane average existence in suburbia punctuated only by Antique's Roadshow on a Sunday night and occasionally popping down t't shop.

This is an amazing place, and if you ever get the chance, visit. Stay.Volunteer. Live here. Love here.

Oh, and make sure you visit the shop; you'll get the Calum discount...a little smile. (Non refundable)
