Sunday 6.14.09


When I see the sheepdogs, I’m reminded of focus.  

They are always so intent, at all times on their work.

So content in their duty.

When I hear the thrum of the pipes and see the swaying skirts, I want to go back.  

Then I remember the ache in my ankles.

And the callouses on my feet that never went away.  

Still it calls to me.

  1. Looks like fun!

    And thanks for sharing your summer memories over at my blog. Do you know that I’d NEVER seen fireflies until I was 36 years old? I grew up in California…we just don’t have them here. So when I went back to Ohio…oh what fun! My boys had a blast catching them and keeping them flickering in a jar. It’s one of THEIR favorite memories, too.

  2. Did you come to Scotland and not tell me?!

    Love men in kilts.

  3. Michelle, i was in shock when my husband told me he had never seen fireflies either, I loved your post. It was a nice reminder.

    Susanna, I only wish. Scottish festival, here. You will be the first to know when I cross the pond.
    And so do I, so… do… I.

  4. how fun! i love the sheep dog picture! my grandmother used to have a wonderful sheepdog named Sammy, that is why we named one of our dogs Sammy because he was so sweet and kind, we thought the name was only fitting 🙂

    OK, off subject *sorry!* great pictures, hope you dig up an old photo of you dawning the same getup for our visual pleasure 🙂

  5. Back again. This is a bit off topic but I’ve tagged you for Recycle Week (it’s fun).
