Thoughts on a Spring Day

It’s so good to finally feel warmth at last, in the air, on my face, and bones, and here at the stone circle. Taking in sunshine under one solitary soft cloud.

I stood awhile and listened to the bleating of the sheep in the field opposite. Ewes watching lambs frolick and leap in the sun.

I placed my palms face down on the ancient granite and felt the heat warm my hands. Absorbing centuries of energy, it felt like being charged, zapped. How many others have done this before me. 5,000 years of people passing through. A shepherdess droving, a Pict defending, smugglers, soldiers, farmers, all on their way.

Specks of dust. Rays of sun. Year on year. Don’t blink. You might miss it.

Scottish Kilt Pin by Dawson Bowman

The Scottish company who makes this kilt pin was foundedΒ by the late Scottish industrialist, Hamish Dawson-Bowman, for the express purpose of introducing a new sense of purpose and pride of achievement into the lives of disabled ex-servicemen, by reviving the ancient art of the Scottish silversmith which had so long remained dormant. Quality, dependability and customer care have long been hallmarks of this company and are just a few of the traditional values which the third generation of the family is committed to upholding.
