On another note

We are also listening a lot lately to The Waterboy's Universal Hall album, one of Damien's recent purchases (he is the more prolific music buyer in our home). Some of the songs are lame but others really catch you, such as "Peace of Iona". This song sparked a family interest in Iona - what is it, where is it, what is Scott singing about in this song? The Celtic Christian wanna-be side of me rejoiced in finding out Iona is a Scottish island. I'm 1/4 Scottish! Which means Iona is part of Celtic history that I can rightfully lay claim to.

    Ever since I left your house, where I heard Laurent lustily singing along to Iona, I cannot get that song out of my head. It's a very interesting melody, to which Laurent gave justice, but all I can remember is Iiiiiii-iiiiii-iiiii-o-na! Help!!!!!

    peace of iona

    peace of the glancing, dancing waves peace of the white sands peace of iona peace of the singing wind peace of the stones peace of iona

    peace of the crying gulls peace of the humming bees peace of the noontime stillness peace of the dreaming hills peace of the breath of angels peace of iona

    peace of the saints and seekers peace of the monks and druids peace of the resting place of kings peace of the ruins peace of doves in the belltower peace of iona

    peace of the glad heart peace of the rested mind peace of my lover's pots and potions peace of her healing hands peace of her lazy laughter peace of iona

    peace of the unseen peace of the spirit peace of iona peace of the unseen peace of the spirit peace of iona
