My mentor; William "Scotty" MacCrea, 1932-2019

My mentor; William "Scotty" MacCrea, 1932-2019

October 28, 2019 2 Comments

The day was the Autumn Equinox. It was a perfect Fall Saturday, 21 June 1968. My parents dropped me off at a farm a couple miles outside the village. I had only met my new friend Kevin a few weeks earlier at the start of the school year.

I don’t recall what words he wrote in his distinctive Celtic uncial script, probably MacCrea and possibly the farm’s name, “Locustbrea”. What I remember vividly was that the calligraphy was illuminated with the image of a Scottish thistle and an interlace flourish in the Celtic style.
