BLOGGING AGAIN

Some of you may know that I deleted my website quite a while ago because of hacking.  I didn’t want to risk taking the time to research a solution just in case my subscribers might be attacked. You all were my first concern.

Finally I’m ready to try the world of websites again, and am fiddling with hostgator, but haven’t yet discovered how to set up a new website.  So  I’m dipping my toes back into the cyber-water by posting on my old original blog.  Waving at anyone who sees this after so long a time!

I’ll share a photo or two about the most exciting thing that happened to me in 2014.  My daughter Lori and I went to Scotland for two weeks.

A touch of Scotland in the movie Braveheart

A touch of Scotland.

There is something gripping about the people and history of Scotland, and while I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the classic movie, Braveheart, the primal drama captured my heart.  Question … what do you think, did the picture of Wallace (Mel Gibson)  leaning his forehead against his ladylove stir you?  For me, it left an impression of painful but unavoidable destiny. Do you wonder how the custom of kilts came about?  My own non-validated thoughts go back to the Romans.  Great freedom to leap and run, but I don’t think it would be practical on horseback.

For such a wee country, the Highlands are spectacular.  Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
