As HRM Owen told the tale, there was the added tweak of irony that not long thereafter, Owen sang a much more melodious piece, demonstrating his fine tenor voice, and Her Grace, for whom the entertainment had been arranged, praised him and did not connect him with the boorish louts she had had to call down, until he reminded her he was one of them.

I cannot improve on Sir Angus's words. HE Ian meant no disrespect and expressed no anger. He collects moments of magic in his memory, and shares them when he can.

Your Grace, it is likely a true thing that these four you scolded, quite deservedly, have in some small part become the 'leaders and heroes' they are because of your admonishment. I am sure your words reminded them of Empathy, Perceptiveness, and Propriety, as well as Candor, and Courage.

Grand and most good Duchess 
t is with some saddness that I must attest that I think you mistake my intent.  
hat memory is a fond one for me and I was not complaining at all. I was 
eveling in a tale of humor with a wry twist. In those years long past and full 
f our youth and enthusiasm we were the ones who were blind to the situation. We 
ad no clue there was any sort of official circle going on we had for hours 
imply been out of the rain in a spot we had claimed for our own, boldly singing 
way oblivious to the rest of the world. What was and is humorous, at least to 
e even all these years later, was that we who were singing were not asked to 
oin the circle but instead were asked to leave it. Please tell me that you can 
ee the humor in that and the irony, that those who had so blundered into their 
wn fun and were so dismissed ended up being a generation of leaders and heroes 
any years later.

ear Ian
 am so sorry about destroying your sing a long.so long ago. but have you ever 
othered to find out my point of view. 
 had been ordered by the King and Queen to make a Bardic circle for our people 
nd to invite the bards of the know world to come to it. I had asked all of the 
eople in the crown pavilion to take part Bards from other groups had honored us 
y coming and they were trying to perform. You choose not to take part but sit 
p next to it and rudely sing through their performance. 
s Baron would you let invited guests in your barony be treated that way,  The 
ardic circle I was trying to maintain was on the schedule and I can assure you 
f it had been a private one not one sponsored by the kingdom I wouldn't of 
sked you to move. Yours and other Ansteorras that night made me give up 
rganizing Bardic anythings. 
 am highly hurt to have you complain about me on a public list without asking 
hy I did it. You are famous for your fairness. Was that fair to me? We need to 
alk face to face about this.
