Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
I used to live near the Brig-o-Dee (the famous bridge that crosses the Dee River in Aberdeen). I lived there for some months, and the view out the front of the house was an unobstructed view of the river itself. You could see salmon running and there were almost always swans visible on the river as well. It may sound ideal, and at the time, it certainly was. I love Aberdeen and will always love the Royal Deeside.
