The Herald: Old Comrades Reunion

A dozen of us turned up at Babbity Bowsers, one of those trendy Glasgow bars, for our annual reunion. Always feel a bit squeamish, wondering who will be missing...and who has died in the past year?
But tonight it's fine. No talk of deaths though we know that some of our former colleagues had indeed passed away since we last met.
It's seven years since I left The Herald as a Feature Writer to go to Glasgow School of Art but it seems, after a few hours in the company of my ex colleagues, that I have not been away at all... sometimes I do miss that shared camaraderie we all had as journalists, the rough and tumble of a daily newspaper office and tight deadlines.

web page

Well, I guess it has been some time since I did a posting. Have been to Chicago and I am now working as an artist-in-residence in Glasgow ( Royston Road Project).
What has spurred me on to put an entry in is that I am working with web designer Andy Allan to put up a web page and he wants to know what links to put in. Well, I reckon one to this blog is a start.
