Five days until the Edinburgh screening of the documentary and serendipity abounds. While leaving a theatre where I saw “The Beautiful Fantastic,” I walked into a bakery named Greenwood.
The proprietor was about to close and offered an extra croissant. I loved the name of her establishment. It has the name green in it. Grant Green loved the word green.
He drove a green Cadillac and lived in a street named Greenlawn in Detroit. The word also appears in a number of album and song titles.
I think he would have approved of the stop in this shop’s name. I plan to visit again before leaving Scotland.
Yesterday’s outing also found us at St. John’s Episcopal Church for Evening Prayer as opposed to EvenSong. The choir is taking a break to prepare for the busy August festival season.
One day I’d love to return and stay for several months to enjoy and participate in the rich culture in this part of the world. I especially like the food. The slow-cooked beef in amber ale and mushroom pie at Rose St. Brewery was ridiculously good.
