Today we had another hard session with our pronouns and have a huge amount of homework for tomorrow. We all agree that our brains hurt - druids and non-pagans alike. The day finished with a short play about the origin of the Welsh National Anthem which John Redwood so memorably failed to sing some time ago. We then gave a short rendition of the anthem led by our tutor Morina who has an excellent voice (and much patience when her language, which was her only language until aged 14, is mutilated by people like me).
The course has been exhausting, but I also feel a little exhilerated because I have learnt so much - I have quite a few more ideas for my novel now, particularly for the dialogue, and it's been good to have time to just think and read and visit the places around me. I have come to understand more than just the language - I think I understand more about what it is to be Welsh too.
