I found this card about 20 years ago and have been using it as a bookmark ever since. It's written in French and I just love the writing script. It was written 75 years ago. I wonder if the writer was aware of the world events which would result in war in three years time. I wonder about the writer's life and hope that it was a good, happy, meaningful life.
I thought of my parents this morning, who are long gone from me, and surmised what they would have been doing in 1936, in Scotland. My father would have been a young man in a Highland fishing village running "the shop" a busy, general merchandise store. And my mother, whose first langauge was Gaelic, would have been a student in Edinburgh not long arrived to that beautiful city from the Hedbridean Island of South Uist.
Here's what I wish for all of us in 2011 - Peace - Joy - Hope - Prosperity - and most of all -Happiness
