Learning Lessons Of Airport Parking In Edinburgh

‘The problem with life is that it takes a long time to figure it out. About a life time, in fact…’

Anon

Life in Hawick continues, rolling on as it always has and always will. No matter the troubles and changes in the world, it always feels hard to imagine them sinking down all the way to Hawick. Surely we are insulated by our tranquillity. It exists in a separate world to revolutions, massacres and drone strikes.  Little Hawick will roll on, on into a future as light and dark as the past. That is a cold truth, and a loving one. There has always been the darkness and the light, and those fighting to stop one overwhelming the other. Those sick of all the light and the happiness they feel so distant from, and want to fight back for darkness, for the darkness they feel so richly. There are times when darkness spreads thickly and fast over some lands and you feel it will never break for the light. When terror and pain runs through the rivers and plains were some poor folk are unlucky enough to live. And they suffer. And they starve. And so many of them die.

Will the darkness reach Hawick? Because it is dominated some areas of our world. And we are connected to that world. Only last week I flew from Edinburgh Airport, which is only a 1 and a half hour drive in the car from here. I drove up to Edinburgh and parked at the airport there. I was terrified. I wasn’t driving far, but I haven’t left Hawick in a long time. Amongst this terror I got a text from a friend about the parking situation at Edinburgh Airport and how to save money (https://www.airportparkingmarket.co.uk/) there.  I felt scared. I felt terror. So far from the darkness, it still made it into my mind.

Is that the darkness winning? Is that enough? Is fear enough?…

What Is Hawick?

Hawick is a beautiful(subjective) town in the council areas of the Scottish Border (objective). It is so wonderful (subjective) to be surrounded by the historic and interesting (eeeeeeeeeeerm) Roxburghshire. Up here, up where we are, in the East Southern Uplands of Scotland. We here in Hawick have many boasts about our great place. Like:

  • We are 10 miles South West of Jedburgh
  • We were once visited by a man called Fred
  • Three times we built that bloody house, and it keeps falling down!
  • We sell three different cheeses in the shop
  • Once, and only once, we allowed two people in one toilet
  • but only once!
