    The Scottish Declaration of Independence, April 6th 1320

    The Declaration of Arbroath was made in the form of a letter, composed in Latin and submitted to Pope John XXII in the year of 1320. Its purpose was to get the pope to acknowledge Robert the Bruce as the country’s lawful king, to assert Scotland’s status as an independent, sovereign state and to defend Scotland’s right to use military force when unjustly attacked. It was most likely drafted in the scriptorium of Arbroath Abbey by Abbot Bernard on behalf of the nobles and barons of Scotland. Eight earls and about forty barons attached their seals to the Declaration. The following is one of its most popular excerpts:

    "As long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours, that we are fighting, but for freedom - for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself."

    The Declaration of Arbroath represents the founding of the Scottish nation and it has been credited as being part of the inspiration for the American Declaration of Independence.

    What does this mean?

    That, my friend, is exactly the question you have to ask.

    It means that this is one of the best ways to pile up rocks and not have them fall down for a long time.

  9. Ladies and Gentlemen: ONE WEEK

    My boyfriend and I are leaving for Yellowstone National Park in just seven days!  It’s terribly exciting, but I have no idea how the internet will be out there, or how much time I’ll have to actually do any tumbling.  So I may be on something of a hiatus for the length of the summer.  I’ll try to let you guys know what’s happening via this blog, and I’ll do my best to update this one as well.  No guarantees though.  I’ll be too busy hiking, backpacking, and exploring!  Oh, and flipping burgers.  That pesky job thing.  

    Keep ya posted!
