Why Orkney?

Because for years and years it was my spiritual home ... we went for the first time in 1981 and for seventeen years had a share in a house at Scapa Bay.   Since 2001 we've stayed at 6 South End, in Stromness.
Much of the work I did for my Fine Art degree was based on Orkney;  George Mackay Brown's poetry  inspired further work, and since starting to write fiction I have produced an illustrated tale of Neolithic Orkney.
It will be interesting to revisit and reinterpret both what I have and GMB's poetry, neglected this past couple of years, in response to other 100 days of summer posts.
