Jamaica! Weird combo this time. The paper is actually lime green and the ink is actually chocolate brown. Doesn’t really show though... Well, at least it sparkles! 😅

Holyrood Palace - The British monarch's official residence in Scotland. It is situated at the end of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. Charles Stuart stays here when he returns to Edinburgh after the Battle of Prestonpans. We saw the Holyrood Palace from a distance when we hiked at Arthur’s seat. .
These past weeks have been shattering for us. My father in law is very ill and the doctors aren’t sure what causes it. He has been to different hospital departments and sent back and forth between several hospitals. A week ago he started to get better, just to get even worse in just a few days. .
I’ve tried to do my calligraphy practice regularly because it works as meditation for me. But some days the time and energy are just not there.
