Last August I wrote about celebrating the ordinary. This is particularly pertinent and poignant right now as I have returned to Scotland, for the reasons alluded to in that post.IMG_4153

In this intense and difficult time of grief and loss words are few for the moment, but to repeat what I said at that time:

“But times are changing, my future visits to the island unsure and my long breaks there unlikely in the same way. I will have to rely on memories and the many photographs……..

Celebrate the ordinary today, because tomorrow may be different.”


And indeed it is.
