Thread Name: Anyone watching Morris?
Subject: RE: Anyone watching Morris?
i agree, mr red. i've never done morris (though my sister does) but i'm very glad that people do it. i thought the programme was very thoughtful and interesting - and that the presenter's initial scepticism and slight cynicism was totally repaired by the end. i very much liked his idea that morris men are indulging in a purely pleasurable activity without the usual way of competition or aggression that men usually engage with each other. sadly, we don't have a functioning morris side in north cumbria as far as i am aware or i may be tempted to give it a go. in the past i didn't want to embarrass my children but now they are in their 30s (and living in scotland or italy) they should be able to cope...
