James (Jamie to his friends) was always proud of his Scottish roots and as he loved
nature and cared about the environment these trees have been planted in his memory.
James was laid to rest at a spot chosen by him overlooking Rosh Pina, Israel.
Once I was young and wild and free
Jumped into life to see what would be
I opened my eyes to see what I see
I could see myself finding me
I walked all the roads that seem true to me
Some on my feet, some on my knees
Sang all the songs that I could believe
And I could hear myself feeling free
Travelled on land and travelled on sea
Flew like the birds and buzzed like the bees
Slept with the stars and woke with a breeze
I could feel myself feeling free
So I lived in a mountain until we agreed
That a need is a must and a must is a need
I listened to water and listened to trees
And touched the place of being me
Well to know this story root to the seed
A word is a word a creed is a creed
In reaping the harvest pull up the weeds
It's all a part of being me
I hope I get there to see
Me and myself being free
And it's me and myself feeling free
It's me and myself finding me
