Heartbreak as Glasgow’s famous art school goes up in flames

Years worth of work goes up in flames for some students as their art school catches fire.

One of Glasgow’s most architecturally beautiful schools goes up in flames and the city stops to watch it burn hoping that firefighters can extinguish and save the building. Unfortunately the library, one of the schools most loved and beautiful areas, was badly damaged in the fire.

Think differently

  I think Glasgow needs more folk like this colourful young guy.  What a place it would be if we did have.

 Thinking a little differently from the typical herded individuals that make up many of the folk in Glasgow.

The Aberdonian Early Morning Glasgow Walker and Drinker-REVISITED

I’ve met this wee man so so many times and I always stop and talk to him. He is a chronic alcoholic but he is also a very articulate and a very insightful man who has some of the most amazing stories to tell. At the Celtic Connections a couple of years back I met him outside the Festival Club and I invited him in, and to the astonishment of the whole room, he sang three beautiful sea shanties.  This photo is nearly two years old now but I’ve placed it back on here after bumping into him again over the past few days.
