Today is referendum day in Scotland. Tomorrow morning I could wake up to find that the place I have called home for decades is about to become a foreign country. I don't want to get into the argument. I just feel like reaching out today to a group of people who have shown repeatedly that they can disagree whilst remaining friends.
Apologies for an unwonted (and probably unwanted) display of emotion. I can't see to type too well because I have something in my eyes.
I have not been following this a closely as perhaps I should. Until a week or so ago I figured there was no chance the Yes vote would succeed. Closer to home, we see Quebec threaten to break away from Canada every 15 years or so, and nothing ever comes of that.
If the Yes vote does prevail, as chaotic and heartrending as that would be at least it was done by referendum and not the way it is being done in Ukraine.
