It seems awkward to continue on with our lively decorating contest . . . without taking a few moments out to reflect on the news over the weekend. I reached out to numerous friends on the east coast, in Connecticut in particular, as soon as I heard. Luckily for me - it seems that my friends were spared this horrible tragedy.
But, as a nation, as a world . . . we're all involved. One can't say, "that's not anyone that I know" and simply move along with one's day. With one's holiday shopping. With one's travel plans.
So . . . we're going to take a little time out here at Tartanscot . . . if only to scroll through a few images of calm and reflection. To count to ten. To think of loved ones. To put the hectic holiday schedule away for a few moments.
And to remember . . .
