If Only! (4,000 words, 20 minutes to read)

This was written in response to a Writers’ Circus challenge, a topic which I set for June 2021.

It is confected from my childhood memories of living in Pollokshaws, before we moved to Arden.

The song which came to mind for me was “Some Enchanted Evening”, one of my father’s favourites.

It has been recorded by many, many people, even by me, a version which is still a work in process (!).

My favourite rendering is by Al Jolson. You can listen to it on YouTube by copying this link into your browser.
