It's the bare necessities
I thought I'd share a picture of the boay eating a cone with you all. We went to the park, we played on the swings, he asked if he could have an ice cream and I had the pennies in my pocket to get him one. Fulfillment for me and him. He gets the joy of the cone and I get the pleasure of buying it for him. It made me think a wee bit about life's rich tapestry and how the simplest of things can bring the greatest of happiness. What more does man really need than the opportunity to provide for his family?
Having lived overseas for 10 years I returned to Scotland, got married and started a family. I'm loving life in Scotland, but know that there are so many ways that we can improve and make better use of what we have. There's no particular aim to this blog. I'd like to think it might provide an avenue for me to crystalise my views and develop the skills to express them coherently. All comments are welcome and will not be moderated.
