today


The road to Skye.... I took this in Scotland. It was one of those afternoons where the sun and clouds were dancing, creating amazing patterns and light. So beautiful.

Today I am at a funeral and then gravesite. That is the hard part. When I leave, I want to be cremated and my ashes scattered to the wind. Fluttering and billowing, chasing the four corners of the globe.

I'll be going over that bridge in 2 days.

I hope your goodbyes are not too difficult, for Hayley especially.

Wishing you peace today. "Speed, bonny boat, like a bird on the wing . . . "

Oh Shelgah, I am sorry for your loss. It seems that Nature is sad too, such a moody day. The sunshine will come back. Gentle hug.

I'm sorry for your loss.

When I die, I want to be cremated and my ashes tossed in the Atlantic Ocean.

I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I was away but your post that day of the Buddha was very good.
Good comment with it, too. You're very brave. All my best wishes and please take your time with things.
