I don't understand what you're asking me.
Sorry, I meant, was the picture taken in Glasgow? But now that I'm looking at in your journal, I see the tag says Edinburgh (my layout doesn't show tags). It's just that Cathcart is an area in Glasgow. Never mind!
What a lovely photograph.. one of my favourite places. I remember looking at that 'Miss Cathcart' stone when I was a child and wondering who she was.
I love these unexpected connections. I can picture little!opheliablue stood in front of it, running her fingers over the bricks while she made up stories for Miss Cathcart.
haha :) I did that a lot when I was little, make up stories about everything. My mum's always reminding me that when I was 4 we used to walk past a kind of green box thing on our street [some kind of electrical thing] and I'd run ahead of her to it then pretend to listen to something happening inside. By the time she got to it, I'd be ready to tell her all about the family that lived inside and what they were saying that day. *snigger*
Yes, it was gorgeous. So much depth, so many scars.

perhaps not useless
but the the raw material that feeds epiphanies-in-synthesis when played on a nonlinear mind
I love the colors and dimensions. May I nick it for wallpaper?
Yasm. I think it's at 800x600 in the LJ gallery. And thank you.
Thank you. I'm so glad you're using LJ again.
...Er, not because I need your compliments, although it's nice to hear them, but because things were definitely duller without your distinctive voice and humor and love for the gay.
Each stone looks like it hides a story. Do you know Miss Cathcart's?
I'm not sure I want to know the facts of her life. It's just as much fun to speculate and invent. ;-)
This is a lovely pairing. Extremely lovely.
Thank you. I'm glad the connection between the photo and the writing had a synaesthetic effect. I was hoping it would.

Walls shouldn't be this interesting...
I love the mix of coloured bricks.
Their haphazard size and placement makes me wonder why the whole wall hasn't fallen down yet.
I feel as if most of my classes in science have been that way, disjointed information, which is perhaps why they were so difficult for me, and even after having mastered the use of an equation, I didn't gain any intuition about that equation or the science for that matter. Lovely photo.
I think you sell yourself short. It's tough to quantify what you retain after you've taken science courses. I mean, I don't remember most things off the top of my head, but I can guarantee that once I've glanced over the relevant equations, I'll be able to use them in a much shorter amount of time than it took me to understand them originally. I imagine that's true for you too. I think it's the problem-solving ability that's retained, which is much more difficult to be consciously aware of than the equation itself.
