"Snow. White . . . "


Greetings,

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 . . . 














Cheers,
Scot

I think we all need to pause and reflect on what is truly important this holiday season…why it takes a tragedy to do this is always baffling to me but it seems to work that way…this one has been particularly troubling to us all…our hearts and prayers go out to each and every family that are hurting from this horrific event. May we never be the same because of it.
