James Hyslop Bore's memorial grove

James Hyslop Bore grove

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
