River Honesty

In the service of honesty, let's admit that the river isn't always cheery and sun-kissed. Rain happens.

The ferry is boarding. Rockferry, that is. Here's Welsh singer Duffy, with guitarist
Bernard Butler, giving us an intimate, "hold the sauce," session of her melancholy tune.

The singer Duffy is from North Wales. Rugged land, geographic isolation and a don't-mess-with-me attitude are things shared by my home town of Hoquiam and the NorthWelsh. I have only ever met one person from North Wales, but that still shows you it's a small world, huh?
