Snapshots of Edinburgh, Day Trips, Scotland

Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a great week.

I had coffee with strangers no less than THREE TIMES this week. Y’all, that is a really lot of getting out of the house and chitty chatting for this introvert. I feel certain I will make up for it by not meeting anyone new for a while.

Except for next week when I fly to London to meet a team of folks I’m going to get to work with some this year! WHAT? I know, I’m totally shocked myself.

But don’t you worry, while I am there, I will totally go for a walk.

Anyhow, here are some stories from the interwebs that I’m loving this week:

A story about North Carolina and Bluegrass Music. I love the South, so I particularly enjoyed reading a Londoner’s take on the scene in NC.

A story about a train’s passing.

A story about some wild women in Alaska.

A story about writing (and changing) your own story. h/t Mike Sowden

More links!

I might opt out of the new releases and return to this movie list to make a viewing choice for the weekend.

This excellent Scotland itinerary is in my neck of the woods!

Hello gorgeous Insta-Chicago.

If you run a business or a blog and you’re struggling with Facebook’s choice to constantly ignore everything you post, you might find this extremely helpful. Or even freeing.

Compassion International is my favorite charity and they will be telling stories from Uganda next week, so I plan to follow along. In 2014, they have already addressed Child Trafficking and Child Marriage.

I fell into a rabbit hole yesterday and did not come up until I had finished this wonderful novel. If you don’t have plans for the weekend, UM, YOU’RE WELCOME!

If you go for a walk this weekend, don’t forget to share it with me!! #48walks on Twitter, Instagram or (evil) Facebook.

Keep on walking!

PS The above photo is a close up of the wall that you walk by when you emerge from the train station in Edinburgh. In forty years, I will still remember the feeling of walking up from the train station along this wall and seeing the gorgeous capital of Scotland.
