Subject: QOTD for Tuesday, 22 December 2015


This one has only a passing reference to Christmas, but it was the beginning of a brief peaceful time for Jamie.

The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 14, "Geneva." Copyright (c) 1994 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

"It was a lonely life—but he had long since accepted the fact that for him, life was unlikely ever to be otherwise.

The soft snows came down upon Helwater, and even Major Grey’s official visit at Christmas—a tense, awkward occasion—passed without disturbing his growing feelings of content.

Very quietly, he made such arrangements as could be managed, to communicate with Jenny and Ian in the Highlands."

[> [> I was so glad he had work as a groom, he had such a way with animals. I think the horses gave him a comfort he wasn't allowed from family and friends. -- Kathy in PA, 06:59:46 12/22/15 Tue

[> This time at Helwater really was one of the few times in Jamie's life, so far, that he could just be by himself and only worry for what needed to be done as a groom. -- LisaW, 07:38:33 12/22/15 Tue
