I’m retired, and have no complaints about my career. At least officially. But I always thought I would have been more successful if I was about 6 inches taller, or had a great chin like say, Cary Grant. I was pretty sure of this.
Last week I received an email from Robin, a Scottish friend, who has been a long time Burns fan; Burns Night and all that.
Since Scott and I made our trip to Orkney and stayed in the “Bothy” on the Pier at Stromness…I have got into some of the art and culture of Orkney. One aspect that might interest you is George Mackay Brown (the bard of Orkney). It’s a lot easier going than some of Burns and really captures the essence of the place.
So I went to George Mackay Brown’s website, and was gob-smacked. Take a look at George’s chin. Simply amazing, my new hero. And I’m not even into his poetry yet.
Here are your links: GMB Website, Wikipedia. George Mackay Brown is considered to be one of the great Scottish poets of the 20th century, to say nothing of a face sporting the Gold Standard of Big Chins.
