Owning land

January 19 2008

When a familymember left me some land in Scotland I went through so many different feelings. It was just unbelievable.

I just knew for sure I had Scottish ancestry and finding myself looking at the official papers of a landowner made me feel proud, happy and very ladylike.
Yes, I am an official lady, even though the land I owe is just a small part, as my (new and yet deceased) familymember had divided his land among all he knew were family.
He tied us together and forever to Scotland. I owe him. I sure do.

Owing land makes you feel far more part of nature that you ever thought you would be.
To call a place on earth your possession makes you feel more in tune with the trees and birds and all the other parts of nature.

Worth considering.
