… ‘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…

… ‘come… dance with me,’ she said…

THOUGHTS ON A WILD THING

A kindly evening breeze
blows its welcome cool
where damp, perspiring beads
their burning course have run.

My thanks toAurora Jean Alexander  for sending me this

it’s one of the best tributes to women I’ve read

When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day…….

An angel came by and asked.” Why spend so much time on her?”

The lord answered. “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?”

●She must function on all kinds of situations.
●She must be able to embrace several kids at the same time.
●Have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart.
●She must do all this with only two hands.
●She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day.

The Angel was impressed” Just two hands…..impossible!

And this is the standard model?”

The Angel came closer and touched the woman.

“But you have made her so soft, Lord”.

“She is soft”…

When heaven strikes ( A failed m/m romance novel)

This excellent writer, author F. E. Feeley, published a blog post with what he called a “failed” mm-romance novel. I read it – and I enjoyed the read immensely. It’s in many ways not only unique, its writing style makes it flow like water and glide into the head. In particular it shows the authors’ enormous talent. I’d like to invite you to read “When Heaven strikes”.
