On Fridays, Wee Read is now at Horizons Recovery Cafe for a Braw Blether.This is delivered by Wee Read for Midlothian Libraries service! It is in a lovely, bright, welcoming space in the hall at Dalkeith Baptist Church in North Wynd, Dalkeith.I recommend the home-made soup! All are welcome to join us, to share reading, to listen and chat about our stories, wi’ a wee bit ae’ writing as well eh?
I love the Midlothian accent, and the people who volunteer and attend the cafe are friendly to all, including a Lanarkshire-cum-Weegie like me.
Last week we did a poem from Emily Dickinson and ”Choose Life’ from Trainspotting. This week we heard from Rumi- The Guest House, which a participant brought with her, and happens to be one of my favourites. Then we heard the Sound of Silence. It was great to explore the song’s lyrics, without the noise of the music which almost hypnotises you to just sing it.
Hello darkness, my old friend,
I’ve come to talk with you again…
Next Friday we’re going to hear from Dylan Thomas, and Bob Dylan among others.
It’s a Braw Blether!
