The Wharry glen is a magical place. The glen nestles between Bridge of Allan and Dunblane. Under the old stone Wharry bridge I wrote in chalk “That was lovely”.
The central idea behind this film is the bridge that spans the arts and sciences; a bridge that spans time and experience; a bridge that helps you cross to what matters, that being love (the river of light).
The poet I mention is Tomas Tranströmer as he wrote so wonderfully about bridges, gates and doorways. The film clip is meant to be intrusive (a comment on self, subjectivity and narcissism). It features Oswald, the oddball yet marvellous, Curator from Poliakoff’s ‘Shooting the Past’. The writer that I mention is Alexander McCall Smith whose encouragement has meant so much to me as really I am just a gardener who happens to be a doctor (an orchard is my garden).
Music includes ‘Alice’ orchestral score, ‘The Lark Ascending’ by Vaughn Williams and ‘Aspects’ by Paul Weller
