St James’ in St Andrews

(written 7/9/09)

Despite its being a Catholic church, this building has a special significance for me.

It was there that, as I was saying elsewhere, I promised myself in 1990 I’d return to Scotland until eight years were over, and the same again after I did return in 1997. Incidentally, on both occasions this happened on 5th September, so that today I’m four years and two days overdue in regard to the second vow.

But I’ll be there next year, come what might. I’m too homesick not to.
