Christy was kind enough to take a few minutes off from promoting the upcoming North Hop event to meet in town for a quick portrait. As well as being involved with North Hop she's a blogger who writes reviews of Aberdeen restaurants as well as travel advice. Well worth checking out her work!

Will there really be a morning?
Is there such a thing as day?
Could I see it from the mountains
If I were as tall as they?
Has it feet like water-lilies?
Has it feathers like a bird?
Is it brought from famous countries
Of which I have never heard?
Oh, some scholar! Oh, some sailor!
Oh, some wise man from the skies!
Please to tell a little pilgrim
Where the place called morning lies!
This poem of Emily Dickinson inspires me in so many ways... first to be hopeful and sometimes to believe in chances that aren't very likely. To face something that is much more powerful than I am: To beat "fate" by taking responsibility for my life.
