Thin Places

Those of you with Gaelic ancestry will know about thin places. I think it entirely accurate to decribe what brings us to moving waters.

This place is a trove of sage advice and destroyed wading boots. Look forward to contributing and listening.

Cheers

Welcome aboard! You're spot on, this is indeed a site of rich, sage advice, with just a wee glint of humor and a wink!

Where do you hang your waders?

For those not of Gaelic origin or ancestry, thin places are where the distance between heaven and earth are almost indistinguishable, or where language fails to express what we may be seeing, feeling, or experiencing.

Assumed immediately the "thin places" were almost always between branches, rock or something else along the far bank. That's why I love a strong tip on a spey rod.

As a scandinavian I'm curious about Gaelic and Irish wrt language. Something I just read online suggests Irish is the same as Gaelic? Seems goofy to me.
