Chant du monde boréal
Sandshifter, 60N.
Where it all makes sense.



Through Chronicles from Arcania, I shall attempt to share walks with you, this poetics from 60N, where I feel at one with our Earth, my sense of place so maritime.

power of words

I love my local library.

It is home to countless treasures: pages, poets, poetry nights, number of smiles beyond all words.

Our librarians are devoted to share the power of the print, recorded voice or fiddler's bid and endeavour  to devour miles across islands to reach out to communities separated by roaring tides. 

As a poet, such devotion goes well beyond might of the pen!

So, here and there, we come to gather and air pages or a song... Inside the walls of Ringan's Church at the Hillhead, we are blessed by such dynamic team! Our librarians have a passion to share might of the spoken word and provides writings with a home, where we belong in all seasons...

Last Saturday was Open Mic' - three minutes of pleasure per poet or participating reader. 
Thank you, Fiona, for such evening - thank you, dear Shetland Library, for harbouring so many treasures and a home! Shetland Library

In this cycle of creation, poetry nights feel de rigueur.


  1. a good library. Librarians are silent heroes in these days of censorship.

  2. Yes, I agree, dear Kay - librarians do an awesome job and go well beyond the line of duty. They have this love for the spoken word, and, I must confess, we are very fortunate in Shetland!!!
    I hope you to have a wonderful home with dedicated librarians for your art :-)).
