I am over-whelmed by the words. 143 is a lot of people taking part. But I am disappointed too. I see people and think “I bet you didn’t do it. I wish you had’. I would have loved it if more people had taken part and felt that it was relevant to them. The negative words are fascinating. But sad that people chose this opportunity to have a go.
Overall the project has been a success and a good learning experience in terms of what is possible to do and how to go about it. Working with Fiona has been one of the learning highlights for me. I feel that our project has been successful in terms of meeting its aim to discover what Tiree means to the people who live here. We have a view of some of them. Some of the words are beautiful, some are sad, some are miserable, some are mean. All of them are interesting, like the people that live here.
All the word are on the blog tireewords.wordpress.com and this is where the story of Tiree in Your words will live on.
