Yesterday was one of those ‘pet days’ and instinct brought me out to the Coastal Path in Dunmore East, which is about eight miles from Tramore, here in Co. Waterford.
As usual I had a notebook in my pocket, just in case some great thought flashed into my mind.
I had walked along the cliffs to Portally Cove with my swimming gear in hand, just in case all was well for the last swim of November.
Portally was bathed in sunlight and the water was divine.
I was sitting on a rock drying off and soaking up the sun when the thought of playing with shadows took my fancy. What bliss to lean into nature and let her do the writing:
And what about the stone walls of Ireland that bring one especially to places like Connemara, Co. Galway, Co. Clare and even parts of Co. Waterford.
Sea creatures emerged from the sea on the page, just as a seal came about as near to the shore as you could imagine.
J stands for lots of things in my mind ~ but yesterday it stood for pure ‘joy’ and thoughts of Summery days of June and July.
