“But just then, for that fraction of time, it seems as though all things are possible. You can look across the limitations of your own life, and see that they are really nothing. In that moment when time stops, it is as though you know you could undertake any venture, complete it and come back to yourself, to find the world unchanged, and everything just as you left it a moment before. And it’s as though knowing that everything is possible, suddenly nothing is necessary.”
― Diana Gabaldon, Outlander

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Widely considered Scotland’s most photographed site, Eilean Donan Castle perches on an island at the meeting of three lochs in western Scotland. The island’s first castle was an early 13th-century fortification against raiding Vikings, and it’s been sacked and rebuilt several times. The most recent facelift was completed in 1932.

  1. Diana Gabaldon keeps popping up in my life at the moment and I am wondering why.
    Thank you for sharing such a stunning photo. The quote is perfect for it.

  2. I wonder why? Are you watching the Outlander series? have you begun reading her books? I have read the previous 7 books and am awaiting the 8th on my reading list.
