Precious Moments


Daughter is here for a week and we have been spending time together, talking books and politics in front of the fire, hosting a large gathering at our Nollaig na Mban and touring around the Irish Loop to give her the feel of the place in winter time. Today, we caught the lavender sunset in Renews, pictured above. Such sights can leave one speechless. And we were.

It was a biting cold day with a dazzling sky. I caught the waves hitting the shore with a lone bird overhead in this photo taken in St. Shott's earlier.



Back to the routine on Wednesday but right now it is lovely to be out of it with my precious daughter by my side.

  1. That sunset is astonishing. I've never seen anything as spectacular. The way the colours blend so seamlessly is wonderful.

    On thy cold, grey stones, oh Sea.
    And I would that my could utter......."

  3. The sunset has a real velvety feel to it. In the second I can feel the salt on my lips and spray on my face.

    I love the water in any season.

    Break, break, break,
    On thy cold gray stones, O Sea!
    And I would that my tongue could utter
    The thoughts that arise in me.

    O, well for the fisherman's boy,
    That he shouts with his sister at play!
    O, well for the sailor lad,
    That he sings in his boat on the bay!

    ah Tennyson!

    WWW, you have it absolutely right, that's the way to go.

    Ageing is a tedious business, make the most of it!

  14. Enjoy the moments with your daughter. I enjoy those few and rare moments that my son and I get to be alone with each other.

    I think I've finally gotten rid of my "if onlys" particularly when it comes to earning a living to supplement my rather tiny pension.
    I just cherish the moments more and more and am glad I am capable of doing so!

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
