My Planet: Grantown-on-Spey, Scotland



Some days you live for.


One of mine was the dream of seeing the castle that bears your family's name, seeing the words "Stand Fast" waiting at the gate, making it through a blizzard up a hill to peek at it from afar.


Others are what you find along the way on journeys like this, like wandering up the long drive through the forest, and finding yourself surrounded by the utter quiet of snow that doesn't care about castles, nor religion, nor money...nor the closeminded people who try to claim the aforementioned are the reason for the season.


The turning of the Earth is the reason, the Earth so many have turned their back on.


Turn back around. Please.


"Nature is full of genius, full of divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand." ~ Henry David Thoreau
