Scotland’s decision today to separate or not has been weighing on my mind.It reminds me of the separatist movement in Quebec that sought to have Quebec it’s own country, separate from Canada.
My father was born in Scotland and I have been there once, the year after he died. I loved the country. But to me, it is part of Great Britain.
They will make their own decision, just as Quebec did. I wish them well, whatever their decision.
These thoughts inspired my poem today:
Yes – No
Stay or go
To decide the future
Of this proud country.
Isle of Sky
What sights I’ve seen
Home of my ancestors.
