Lovely picture by Brian Johnstone, taken on Prestwick Beach. Wonderful warm summer colours, pity the weather is mainly shades of grey!

Love this picture of Ailsa Craig by Brian Johnstone, beautiful light effects.

Open book…

Books are doors that lead you to other worlds of imagination.



Slip away

Understand, I’ll slip quietly
Away from the noisy crowd
When I see the pale
Stars rising, blooming over the oaks.
I’ll pursue solitary pathways
Through the pale twilit meadows,
With only this one dream:

You come too.

Rainer Maria Rilke, from “First Poems”

“sunset thinking”

So many great pictures of Portencross, here is another perspective as the sun sets. (Cover picture from Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald on Facebook).


Do you ever watch the sunset
And just sit and think about things
Just you and the sky and darkness
Giving your thoughts some wings

Hold fast…

Wonderful picture of Arran in the snow, taken by Kirsty Smith from the Arran Mountain Rescue Team while out walking with her dog Cassie (11.2.14) from the Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald on Facebook

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

Langston Hughes
