Season of Winter

I’ve been holding onto a very interesting journal for over a year now. It is called, “A Year of Zen” by Bonnie Mayotai Trease. What makes it so cool are the daily prompts. The journal breaks up the year into seasons. Obviously, we are in Winter, so I decided to kick off the journal onContinue reading “Season of Winter”

Waiting On Inspiration

Let’s be honest here for a minute, it has been one hell of a year for all of us. The highs were really high and the lows were ridiculously low. It is as if 2021 suffered from Bi-Polar Disorder.

A little nervous about our one and a half hour drive to the Isle of Skye with icy roads, we decided to just buck up and make it happen. It was bittersweet to leave Inverness. We sort of fell in love with theContinue reading “Over The Sea To Skye”

When the night came, silently lay Dead on Culloden’s field.

Our time in Inverness was coming to a close and it was time to get ready to head to the Isle of Skye, just like the Bonnie Prince Charlie did hundreds of years ago.
