… ‘come… dance with me,’ she said… – Written By Seumas Gallacher

Today I’d like to share one of Master Gallacher’s blog posts with you. In this post, which is several years old, he shows once more, what an amazing, caring, sensitive and unique character Seumas Gallacher is. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on this, Seumas. It is touching and emotional.


… ‘come …dance with me,’ she said… that was 46 years ago… we were living in Tobermory on the beautiful Scottish Hebridean Island of Mull… I recall it today as if it were only hours ago… have a wee look at the date on this piece I came across in my papers while I was searching for sum’thing else… of course, I danced with her… and in the full fury of teenage indulgence, fell completely under her spell… prob’ly my first ever real immersion in the twin joys of Love and Heartache of youth… then, just as swiftly, she moved out of my life… but I still have this collection of WURDS I penned for her… when I read it again this morning, strangely, across all the decades, it felt good… it felt warm… and it felt right to share it with yeez…
