This past September, Tyler and I spent a week in Scotland. One evening, I found myself sitting at a pub in Edinburgh listening to live Scottish music.

She told me the bag was by a line called Chylak. I took a photo of it, telling myself I must investigate it further. Also, not surprising, that investigation never happened.

When the winter holidays end, my feelings about the cold weather immediately shift from “it’s charming” to “it’s inconvenient and I’m ready for spring.”
