We are reminded that lie is fragile, precarious and precious especially in the past few days. I have lived in many places in my life, and the most years I have spent in one spot happens to be Glasgow.
Glasgow is city of extraordinary people. A city of humour which makes my sides ache, quips and comments in the everyday chatter which are insightful and so often wickedly funny. A city of rich diversity and resilience. A city of culture and kultyer. A city of unique fabrications and real wits such as Rab C Nesbitt, Rikki Fulton and his Reverend I M Jolly, and Billy Connolly.
I heart Glasgow.
Now the Christmas lights have been switched off and the flags flying at half mast. Candles have replaced the lights and flowers cover the area which had been designated “Glasgow loves Christmas” with events, shopping and festive Fun in the heart of the city. Now the people of Glasgow are holding each other close and digging deep into their resilience.
