Glasgow Bombing

It feels surreal even typing that heading. Thankfully there has been no innocent loss of life, but there was certainly a loss of innocence here in Scotland yesterday.

It is very shocking to hear your own people describing a terrorist attack on a place friends and family used only days before and you yourself know very well.

Sad times indeed. And probably wholly counter-productive in terms of shortening our involvement elsewhere.

I've just phoned Number One Son, and he hadn't heard about the attack. He's coming to visit in a few days, bringing our two grandchildren, and the news, as you can imagine, worries him. I'm assuming the extra security will be at our side, going to pick them up from the airport.

Thoughts go with you; when you live in a peaceful place, it never seems quite real until it touches you that bit closer. But it is still a rare and unlikely thing to affect you...
Loved the BW fence picture.

Not what was needed at all. Very sad to see that security needs to be so tight with all this foolishness. Take good care travelling.

Saw your foot soldier poem - I enjoyed that!

Colin I hope the raised security doesn't spoil your son's visit. Nothing worse than extra hassle when travelling with kids.

Thanks all - the risk are very small, but it's the fact that you have to factor it in at all that's the worry. And I'm more concerned for my son, who is out and about more than me.

It's a global village and no mistake

It is so sad that some people persist in foolish, ugly, anachronic acts, when there is so much beauty in this world , so many beautiful things to do, to learn, to behold...
I loved your previous post about the seeds and your garden, and the picture of the fence - very haunting...
