Summertime in the Deep North
August 8, 2003
For not being terribly thrilled with my own rustic ancesteral homeland, it’s strange that I’m so completely enamoured of The Deep North, a blog recounting the day-to-day life of a pair of authors living in the wilds of remote northern Scotland.
I don’t recall how I found it, but each new post is a complete treat—if I could ever figure out just who these people are, I’d be buying their books too; the descriptions of the charming and eccentric people who wander in and out, and the minutia of life in the highlands is a wonderful and welcome break from the day.
Who knows, maybe it’s just the wee bit of Scot in my background coming oot…
(Maybe it’s more than wee… I seem to recall The Genealogy Aunt saying we go back to some Scottish Clan or another… I’ve got her epic tome tracing the Lawson clan around here somewhere… hmmm…)
