Let there be light

Hi and welcome to 2012. What about that full moon last night, January 8th? It was spectacular and so bright you could have done your bedtime reading by it!

There is something about winter light that is refreshing. Perhaps it is the promise of Spring, as seeds and bulbs lie dormant, waiting for their cue to burst into new growth.

With all the recent mildness though, our daffodils have already started to sprout. Worried at first in case the inevitable frost will kill off the budding plants, I found a friendly gardener at our nearby garage shop who assured me this morning that they will thrive nonetheless, even under ice! So that’s something to look forward to.

My picture today is another one from my husband’s Galway Gallery, taken in the ruins of  Annaghdown Abbey, where St Brendan is said to be buried. A final track from my favourite artist seems fitting: Into the Mystic, by Van Morrison. Peace and Joy.

      Thanks so much Lurline, glad you like it. I’m looking into how to embed a mail chimp so that I can email when the blog’s updated. Meantime, my new posts go directly to twitter so if follow me you can link to the blog from there. Hoping to set up the mail link soon anyway. Thanks again 🙂

Fibromyalgia and Depression. Fighting the stigma attached to yet another illness not widely understood. We search for answers from the experts who are just searching for the answers themselves.
