speed

Phew.. Made it tae Ullapool wae speeds in excess of 41mph and seat
belts on, it is a relief tae get here in one piece. Indeed coming doon
the hill past Achtimucklietubby we hit 43 mph. A wee fag break at the
bottom just tae steady the nerves. Ah the joys of single track living
nae seatbelt and 15 mph

Differences

Tae lash oot at difference shows nothing more than your hidden hatred.
And while you form your views and follow up on them at a time YOU HAVE
YOUR HEAD UP YOUR ARSE, YOU will never see the beauty in difference.
Instead of venting your crap often hiden under a cloak of reaction tae
some horror visited on humanity. Take a moment tae think aboot the
bigger picture.. Love and light on a stunning highland day

ebb

from a wee cave high on a cliff. Two hermits and a dug watch on. Not
today the tidal work. The ocean angered at having tae retreat rages
black and grey. Wave 30 , 40 ,50 and more race in from far oot. The
sky disappears under salt filled plumes. One after another waves try
tae grip the rocks trees anything tae defeat the retreat. Ancient
trees are ripped from roots and dashed at the foot of thd cliff. But
still the invisible quiet tug of the moon peals the ocean inch by
inch. Once last effort and wae the wind her aide in the eternal
battle.. Enormous waves hit the wee islands topping them the sound tae
loud tae bear ... BUT AS ALWAYS DEFEAT. The wind hushed the sea calm.
At last the ocean larder opens and off tae work we go.

A wee film about us on STVs the HOUR SHOW click on STV logo to see the film
Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
