Taking a good photo is a challenge. Sometimes I see things that aren’t there.
This abbey has been in ruins since the Reformation in the 16th Century. First it was the English who attacked the monastery, then it was the Scottish Protestants.
I heard Judy Small sing her ‘Walls and Windows” in Brisbane years ago. She wrote great songs but gave up folksinging and is now a judge in the Family Law Court.
Here’s the last verse from that song-
Oh may we live to see the day when walls of words and fear No longer stand between the truth and dreams When walls of windows rise into the darkness and we dare To look into the mirror and see peace. from Judy Small's song "Walls and Windows"
