Watching Taggart on the TV tonight which is filmed in Glasgow it struck me how disconnected I have become from that place.
I used to spend so much time there, traveling all over the city as a labourer, playing gigs there as a musician and generally getting to know it intimately - both drunk and sober.
And yet now I have nothing to do with it whatsoever. It was so real at the time and it is firmly lodged in my memory.
I still have a lot of affection for it - it is a great city. But it is not real any more or part of my current life.
Funny how things change.
