Calendar: Two Thousand Ten - January

January's calendar image comes from the remains of Holyrood Abbey, in Edinburgh. The ruins are over 800 years old! They're on the grounds of Holyrood Palace, at the foot of the Royal Mile.

I was quite taken with the stonework - it was dramatic on that drizzly day, and refreshing after we spent time indoors touring Holyrood Palace.

I especially liked this gravestone from 1812 reminding us "Of the uncertainty of human life, / And the instability of earthly possessions / And enjoyments." - Yet another reminder to value experiences over things!
