Edinburgh // February 23, 2017

I climbed my first mountain in the U.K. in Edinburgh. It was called Arthur's Seat and I have to be honest and say that it took me a while to enjoy climbing it.  I went in with a headache and feelings of displacement.  But when we reached the point where we could see all of the city, it was worth it.  I found my mood was blown clean off the mountain and I had such a wonderful time creating something that felt like true art while I was there.  And can I tell you about these humans, cause they are incredible.

I made a comment in passing to Neeley that I wished these bushes were not full of thorns because I just want someone to climb in all of those yellow flowers.  Before I could protest she had implanted herself in the bush.  If that's not real friendship, I don't know what is.  

Audrey was a real champ when I asked her to dance around with my scarf in front of those people.  Like I said, real friendship. 

Just trying my best to hold onto feelings in the heart of Tennessee.
