all the blue ink

I want 

one of those people in your life who renders you immutably blind

blind to reason 

blind to stupid logic 

blind to rationality

blind to all those things you’d never ever go unless he asked 

but you’d do the just in case he noticed 

(he probably won’t)

blind to all the little pieces

the traits and the quirks 

that slowly melt away

So as you’ve seen from my pics recently, I’ve been travelling #praguepics. It got me thinking, if I could go anywhere, where would I go? I thought about it long and hard. There are SO many places I would travel to if I had the means. Overall, I decided that if you ever want to go somewhere, anywhere in the world, go to Scotland. Seems strange not only that I would pick the place I currently live, but that I’m telling you to go to a place that is usually 89% cold, wet and grey. Yeah, you should probably be prepared for that or you’ll end up like me caught out in shorts in the snow—Edinburgh should be more famous for its four seasons a day, than the film Trainspotting.  However, Scotland is so much more than poor weather.  As a person who’s lived there for 3 years I can tell you that Scotland is wonderful. It has this unique quality to its atmosphere, where even in the rain it’s the most romantic, buzzing, intriguing and beautiful place to be.  From the Isle of Skye’s dramatic cliffs to moors in the borders, lochs in the highlands, beautiful coastlines and even, the sunshine on Leith; Scotland has a magic that is all its own, and is alive with it. Scotland is ethereal and romantic yet passionate and stormy.  It’s a contradiction that has created the most beautiful place to be. So to all my followers from abroad and really anyone who reads this: get your arse up to Scotland as there cannae be any place better.

Not Alone

Dedicated to my mom, who is awesome.


Looking for a little inspiration

Feeling a bit lost

Not knowing which direction

Is the right one

 

I need a treasure map

Where X is the mark

Where I need to be

Where I’ll find my spark

 

I’ll know when I find it

In some innate way

But to find it at all

Is what worries me

 

Which is why I’m glad

That I have you

The voice of reason

When my doubts are all I know

 

So I’m still a bit lost,

Unknowing in direction

But with you as my guide

I know I’m not alone.
