It was a very mild but very wet Christmas! I missed walking, so I was delighted when Carrickfin Beach beckoned me on a beautiful sunny but frosty day.
The beach was almost deserted, as I admired the frost on the sand dunes and seaweed – a rare delight.
I reflected on the past year and my writing progress. “Watching the Daisies” is now in print format and has attracted 30 great reviews and lots of positive feedback. It is winding its way into Irish libraries and beyond…
Taking an extended break over Christmas has allowed me to pause and ponder on the way forward for 2018.
“The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.”
I do not feel inspired to write another book just yet; it feels good to just stand back and enjoy the view for the time being…
After my beach walk, I made my way back to my car past icy puddles, knowing that this time shall soon pass, and the flow of life will continue…
Dear friends, at the beginning of a New Year full of endless possibilities:
“May the blessing of soft rain be on you,
Falling gently on your head refreshing your soul,
With the sweetness of little flowers newly blooming.
May the strength of the winds of Heaven bless you,
Carrying the rain to wash your spirit clean,
Sparkling after the sunlight.
May the blessing of God’s earth be on you,
And as you walk the roads,
May you always have a kind word for those you meet.”
Traditional Irish Blessing
