Love letter 5

A love letter to Edinburgh once again (see love letters 1,2,3 and 4). Now a year since D and I have been living here, and we have felt that time, it has not rushed itself. Every moment felt and lived and hoped through.



In Greyfriar’s Kirkyard, peaceful and full of herbs and stones of course.



A detail of an angel from a gravestone on the kirk wall.



And the sky darkening, pinkish against the solidity of Pleasance houses.


And lastly, I recorded a sad little poem about building something, about memory and waiting. Not so much about Edinburgh, but tangentially related to coming back and to leaving Scotland itself. you can listen to it here.

  1. Your sad little poem is beautiful, and what a treat to hear it from the author herself. XO

  2. So lovely to hear your voice, Helen.

  3. When I studied abroad in London during college I went to Edinburgh twice and it became one of my favorite cities. I could so live there. Now I’m looking at photos of the Scott Monument online — still gives me the shivers after all these years!

  4. Stunning photos so right with your words
