Anchor me

My friend Sarah at Art Expedition is hosting 30 Days, 30 Songs to share her music during June. I’m already a bit late to the party, but will join in when I can during the month.

This morning I walked down to Greenhithe wharf to watch the morning mist roll away up the harbour. The tide was full, and apart from a lone fisherman, the wharf was deserted.

I’d already chosen a song to post today, but (cliche though it may be) The MuttonbirdsAnchor Me seems much more appropriate.

Don McGlashan’s songs and voice have been on the soundtrack to my entire adult life; so I expect a few more will sneak into this project.
