What connects this innocent little Scottish river - full of sticklebacks and minnows when I was a kid- with the band ‘Guns n Roses’, a secret kiss, one of the most famous novels in the world and ...the attempted assassination of an American President? The poet Robert Burns wandered across this Ayrshire landscape and the people of my hometown Dalry have long claimed that his famous poem of 1782, ‘Comin thru the Rye’ refers to an illicit sexual encounter Burns had as he helped a girl called Jenny cross this little river, the River Rye, in her soaked dress. As the poem says, “Gin a body meet a body, Coming thru the glen, Gin a body kiss a body, Need the world ken?” In Salinger’s ‘Catcher in the Rye’ the adolescent hero Holden Caulfield mishears the lyrics being sung and then dreams that he sees someone catching children as they fall off a cliff, only later to be told by his sister that there is no ‘catch’ in the poem and so there can be no catcher. In other words loss of innocence is inevitable and we all have to grow up. Holden is the original mixed up adolescent who even imagines at one stage using an automatic weapon to kill another boy who insults him. Over the years various nut jobs have unfortunately claimed to be inspired by the novel, not least John Lennon’s murderer who tried to change his name to Holden Caulfield and John Hinckley Jr the wannabe assassin of Ronald Reagan. The band Guns and Roses wrote a sarcastic rebuke to the cult of what they called this ‘garbage’ novel after hearing that it had inspired Lennon’s killer. It’s ironic perhaps that in this story of mistaken identities, misheard lyrics and misunderstandings that the river itself may be entirely blameless after all. Most experts now agree (though don’t tell the Dalry Burns Society) that the legend of the river was invented. It was most likely just a field of rye Jenny was wading through when she came across a handsome young poet. But either way ....from a stolen kiss in Ayrshire to gunshots in Manhattan is an unlikely journey. #rivers #ayrshire #travel #gunsnroses #burns #history #poetry #catcherintherye #salinger #novel #writing

I was proud of the strength I’d found. I was the one who asserted he take me back; I caused him to listen. I was no longer a passive Doll Girl, trapped. This was me learning I could trust my voice—I’d used it, and it finally worked! I was triumphant. This escape showed me: I had grown, and grown vividly •

walked barefoot in/on this sacred space. This once a port for the arrival of enslaved Africans--of Senegal-Gambia land, of which my matrilineal DNA descends-- and this is brought to you by only a tiny barely noticeable plaque in the ground.

I've thought so much about ancestors.
So many spiritual warriors were born here.
So much soul. They are everywhere. ·

I am back hm in the woods now in time to feed myself all the colors. ·

This beet hummus is the most fire and beautifully rich redish purple thang of desire. It ain't average. It's a 'how sway?' experience
