    When I read this mornings “quote of the day” post I saw that word and thought “now there’s a ‘word of the day’ if ever there was one” – it does have a Celtic magical feel to it

    Last night I posted Celtic music for the Arabic “Oud” so using the flimsiest of excuses an “aisling”, a beautiful Iranian girl playing an “oud” in Persian style – aren’t human beings amazing creatures!
