The Narrow Road

Highlander

The snow is deep, my stumbling feet,
I ooh and I ah—how white this sheet!

Basho.

Namaste, and greetings to all you good souls, people of the internet, to whom WordPress owes its magic. I’ve been a bit too ill to focus on blogging of late, which explains my longish absence.  Had a good day today though, and we had nice weather to go with it.

Although it hasn’t snowed in our part of the world, it is a likelihood, and so I thought I’d prepare myself with this old digitalised slide, taken in Scotland, over thirty years ago. And, what a wild and lonely place it depicts indeed. I’ve often wondered about the hardy individuals who live in this remote dwelling.

Anyways, I hope you like this memory of mine, (tap on the pic if you’d like a close up view,) and, I digitalised a few more old slides, which, fairly soon, I hope to share with you too.

Oh, and by the way, I turned sixty a few days ago – how cool is that.

Wishing you a very happy day.

Cheers from Amras.

  1. Incredibly beautiful and yet so lonely. I need the city. But, the photo and the zoom. I’m glad I lived long enough to witness modern technology, and, but much slower, a spreading of compassion within more and more people, and Twitter – it has such potential for sharing the best we have to offer.. Thanks for sharing without even knowing whom you share with. It takes a quality of soul.
