Last entry for 2012. I have been too long “in a bad place” but am coming out of it and will do my best to be a more reliable blogger. Even whilst not blogging I was maintaining a list of subjects about which to write. I hope you will return next year and read the posts.
This past September (2012) I led a six week discussion at the local community center. The title was “Scotland: Beyond the Castles and Distilleries” and that was chosen because during my 2009/2010 Hogmanay trip I was told “it is so nice to meet an American to whom Scotland is more than castles ….”
The intent was to present a vision of Scotland based on my visits and readings, as well as learn about the interests of the attendees. Sadly it was sparsely attended but, regardless, we still had fun and I am confident I presented information not typically encountered during a course about Scotland. The course is supposed to be offered again next month but we shall see what happens, eh?
