    • That, my friend, shall have to remain only in your imagination, I’m afraid ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽต

      She had been playing, but had stopped for a smartphone break by the time I got close.

      She did, very thoughtfully, tuck said mobile handset away out of sight when I asked if she minded having a photograph taken…

      I am sure that if you hold her image in single-pointed concentration long enough you will surely start to sense a silent stirring of the skirl…

        When we lived in NYC, on Staten Island, the borough NYC likes to forget, there was a big old Catholic church right down the street. From time to time someone played bagpipes for ceremonies. What a treat to hear that floating through the window. Skirl is a new word – looked it up to be sure I understood and I did – makes sense.

        • Glad you found that a treat – I know the sound of the pipes is not to everyone’s taste.

          I think I have actually only ever heard that term used in connection with the pipes. By the way, bonus authenticity points are on offer if you imagine pronouncing it as two syllables – with a schwa inserted between the ‘r’ and ‘l’ – and a rolled ‘r’, of course: skirr-uh-l.

          In hindsight I should perhaps have entitled this post ‘The Girl with the Skirl” (the girr-uh-l with the skirr-uh-l) – eat your heart out, dragon tattoos ๐Ÿ˜‰
