Subject: RE: Ray Fisher unwell: good thoughts, please
Good morning, Ray and Colin. You've been on my mind this morning so here I am writing to you again. Archie will be singing in New Hampshire and Maine within the next couple of weeks. I'll be glad to have a visit with him and listen to the concert performances.
I'm remembering Barra as well. I walked around the island in the rain the first time I stayed in a B&B there. The seals were just offshore from a beach on the western side, and I spent an hour or more singing and playing a tin whistle to them; with their calls and mine washing back and forth.
I am so grateful you have both been part of my music world. From the Cilla/Ray/Archie tour several years ago (The Folkway, Iron Horse, Chocolate Church, etc.) to the Edinburgh International Folk Festival (bagpipe conversations with Colin, and Ray belting out "W-o-m-a-n!) My life would be much poorer without Ray and Colin in it. Thank you both for the hours of music and conversation.
Joy be to you,
maeve, in Maine
