Scotland vs Catalonia - Review

JUDIT MUNSO MEETINGIt was a wonderful evening with our first guest, Judith Munsó, who had a lot to say about life in the Scottish Highlands. She is an experienced language teacher (German, French and Spanish,!) well on her way to become truly Scottish: "It is not that cold, really", we heard her say!! We could see this brave woman has really settled down and feels very much at home among friendly Scottish people. Lovely little Lydia is not to be forgotten, so well behaved and patient -for over an hour!- as she looked at her mother in surprise: It is Catalan in Scotland, now English in Menarguens! Who can understand these grown ups! (my own thoughts). Jordi Casals deserves a special mention for bringing a nice touch to the closing part of the session, in which he asked Judith to read a well-known poem by Robert Burns (from a compilation of European poetry translated by Marius Torres). Wasn't it a little present to be able to hear Burns with the proper Scottish accent? 

Judith, thank you for your vivid account of life on the Isles!

 My heart's in the Highlands

My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,

My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer -

Chasing the wild deer, and following the roe;

My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go.

Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North

The birth-place of Valour, the country of Worth;

Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,

The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.

Farewell to the mountains high covered with snow;

Farewell to the Straths and green valleys below;

Farewell to the forests and wild-hanging woods;

Farewell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods.

My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here;

My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer;

Chasing the wild-deer, and following the roe,

My heart's in the Highlands wherever I go

El meu cor és als Highlands

El meu cor és als Highlands, el meu cor no és ací,

el meu cor és als Highlands, cérvols a perseguir;

caçant cérvols salvatges i daines -per això,

el meu cor és als Highlands, vaig allà on vagi jo.

Adéu-siau els Highlands, adéu-siau el Nord,

on sigui que jo vagi, on em dugui la sort, 

la contrada dels nobles, el bressol del valor,

les muntanyes dels Highlands són sempre el meu amor.

Adéu-siau muntanyes ben cobertes de neu,

adéu penyes, valls tendres que als seus peus verdegen,

adéu-siau arbredes i boscúries penjants,

adéu torrents i salts d'aigua remorejants.

El meu cor és els Highlands, el meu cor no és ací,

El meu cor és als Highlands, cérvols a perseguir;

caçant cérvols salvatges i daines -per això,

el meu cor és als Highlands, vagi allà on vagi jo.
