But are these folks folkies, that's the question.

Goat Smith

Stupid dirty hippies with their stupid cosmic dancing. The bagpipe was cool, though.


Hosni

Those look like fair-weather pagans. Stonehenge deserves better:




John McLaughlin

Goat Smith

John McLaughlin

But the hippies thought it was cool to do untaught, stupid and half-remembered square-dancing to it.... Jeez, folks can be so schmuckish to a true folkie, can't they...?

The Extra Mile by Peter Stanford – review

By Victoria Segal

The Guardian, Saturday 2 April 2011


The Extra Mile: A 21st Century Pilgrimage by Peter Stanford

When Stanford edited the Catholic Herald, the paper kept a form letter to answer those who sent in photographs of the Virgin Mary's face in odd places: "It is a special gift to be able to see such signs of God's presence in our world. We, sadly, are not so blessed . . ." In this study of modern pilgrimage in Britain, he finds that the quest for religious experience still has an element of people seeing what they want – or need – to sate their spiritual hunger. Travelling to Stonehenge on Midsummer's day, he feels excluded by the Druidic drumming and dressing up (partly, he admits, because he has "always been a terrible dancer"); a prayer meeting on the Welsh island of Bardsey, reputedly home to the graves of 20,000 saints, is marred by the group wrapping his head in a beige pashmina, a gesture "whose symbolism is neither obvious nor explained". Yet while Stanford takes quiet pleasure in unpicking woolly thinking, he writes movingly about the pull of the past, recognising that in hard times, the path of enlightenment becomes an appealing road-trip.

It was said that not only did banshees live at Stone Henge, but banshees lived well at Stone Henge. And tell Goat Smith, I still have not forgotten bout the bauxite he owes me.
