May Music, Day 4 – Breathe….. Listen…..Look

This one is so much easier than the third one was. Twindaddy is asking, for his fourth question, which piece of music we find calming.

Ever since I heard this years ago it has been one of my favourite pieces of music.

Mark Knopfler/Dire Straits at one of their best. Local Hero/Wild Theme.

The scenery in the area where the movie was filmed is breathtaking. We visited there a few years ago and I wanted to stay forever. Just gorgeous. Enjoy. This one’s for the music and the scenery.

This one’s for the music and watching Mark Knopfler explore the guitar with finger-picking casual elegance and more than a touch of genius.


A few wee bits and pieces about the movie if you’re interested.

Some Info

You can get the whole movie on You Tube! But I’m not being responsible for that link! 😉 Well worth a watch.


I DON’T CARE. I accidentally hit publish on this instead of preview, caught myself in what I thought was the nick of you-know-what and trashed it to be salvaged later for the right day. Restored it from trash and what do you know? Feckin’ 3rd of May shows up. I don’t care. Except, obviously, I do a little. Why isn’t there a little doohickey that says are you sure you want to do this, you might have had too much Drambuie to know what you’re hitting, are you sure, missus? Naw! Too obvious, isn’t it. And it was only a toatie wee Drambuie. I was so busy making sure that I didn’t destroy another laptop with ill-timed hand-eye-Drambuie co-ordination. You’d think WP would know this stuff. Or should that be stuph? Fecked if I know.
