A poem by author unknown inspired me…..

I suppose you could say there was a distinctive kind of spirit in this home.

Yes, I’m sure there was.

It was the spirit of kindness, patience, loveliness, beauty, and love itself.

The thought occurred to me as I left, that to these people

Heaven itself would not be strange when they went there,

Because they had a corner of it right on Earth.’

‘Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; Forget them as soon as you can, Tomorrow is a new day; Begin it well and serenly and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsence.’

 

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am at my most happiest when I am grateful. Unfortunately this does not happen enough as I know I have much to be grateful for. It is always the difficult life events that make us take stock and realise how blessed we really are. My goal is to make gratitude a constant rather than an aspiration in my life.’

My perfect day …… On a calm sunny morning to head out on my kayak with Ruby (my dog) to Long Island, then walk to the beacon on the eastern side and have a picnic. Or to swim out the harbour to ‘the point’ with my swim buddies then back to Schull where we meet up for a coffee and cake at the country market to warm up!’

My favourite quote is from the poet and songwriter, the late Leonard Cohen -

‘Forget your perfect offering, there’s a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.’

Life can never be perfect but we get on with it and a little brightness is never too far away!

My perfect West Cork day…………

 

After the madding crowds of summer have departed 

After the migrant swifts have left these shores for warmer climes

When all in West Cork is returning to peace and serenity

A walk to the very end of Brow Head to stand and face the ocean

Knowing the air you breath is as pure as it can be

Knowing the next landfall is the USA and

there’s nothing between you and it but the open sea

You’re all alone on the edge of the world

There’s not a living soul to be seen for miles

Peace

 

Followed by a visit to O’Sullivan’s in Crookhaven

A pint of the black stuff in Ireland’s most Southerly bar

A basket of the freshest shrimps the ocean can provide 

Consumed in front of the roaring fire

Perfection.’
