“If only we’d stop striving to be happy we’d have a pretty good time.”
I have been very blessed again this week:
A HUGE thank you to all my blogging friends who voted for me in the Ireland Blog Awards; I really appreciate your support. The names of the finalists have not been released yet but regardless of the outcome, I enjoyed the journey.
At long last, I posted a cheque for my book’s final proof read. I have set a tentative launch date – 14th November, which coincides with a very auspicious Full Moon. The moon will be less than 360,000 km. from the centre of the Earth and it will therefore appear bigger and brighter to us Earthlings!
My next task is to write the words for my book cover – a key element in attracting readers, before finding the most eye catching design.
It is always a pleasure to support other writers. David Dunlop’s second book The Broken Fiddle was launched last Saturday in a local hostelry known as “Leo’s” which is decorated by album awards from celebrated musicians – Clannad and Enya ; the late Leo was Enya’s and Maire Brennan’s dad.
I was joined by several very dear cousins, listening to a number of talented local musicians including said author David, who kept us all mesmerised.
As per usual, near summer’s end the Irish weather centred itself . I enjoyed two more trips to the beach this week and I was able to take some lovely, long walks without the fear of getting soaked!
