Dear Don: Journal…

scotland trip jan 15 395Dear Don,

Well, that’s it. I’ve finally managed to finish the journal of our last jaunt. We have a reasonable record now as well as the four thousand visual reminders in my photo files… For all I have scribbled down so much about the trip I left such a lot out too. I’m hoping what is there will remind us. I still can’t quite believe how much we managed to see, you know! I am so grateful.

Even harder to encompass is the sheer scale of the ‘coincidences’ that appear to have wandered the road with us. Right down to Kentigern’s association with both Aberlady and our hairy anchorite… or the same masons working on three Norman churches 250 miles apart. There is a lot to take in and digest. I wonder where it will lead?

You really do have to have a look at the carvings on the crosses we missed at Middleton though…

The weirdest thing is how the things we found tie in with the beginning so neatly, except we are revisiting the ideas now with greater knowledge and a better understanding, so we are seeing even more.
