Sunny Ireland August 2022
Outside is sunny and hot. 30 degrees centigrades...outstanding in this wet land where my bones sometimes feel mouldy...and i got up for second day free of pain.
Its 7.pm the sun still shinning. The lake in my village is buzzing. It looks like a resort in the Mediterranean. kiddies with their rubber ducks, umbrellas, family bbqs, all searching the blessed water, the giving water thats makes this island green, magical and mythical with its faeries and heroic stories that so inspired Yeats...
At least the pain that was there last few months is gone for now. I danced to drums for an hour and im still standing. So now i lie in the garden contemplating the fennel and the rocket and the comfrey the sage and the apple trees and all the patches that i neglected because of pain...and still the land gives its perennial gifts, that like this moment, are a resource, a moment to behold and to embrace...a nurturing instant from the great mother.
And i wanted to share this deep peace with all of you, my heroic and mythical parky friends, all over the little planet we call home. To let you know how close to my heart you all are, untiring researchers fatigued, limping,insomniacs bent sometimes like Pisa towers leaning on each other sharing resources, knowledge, humour becoming arcs of triumph as we support each other.
I listen to choirs for peace wile i receive this gentle gift...the birds are singing, my cat is purring at my feet and the crows are cawing...and i send you all a hug and a smile and wish you all well peaceful and happy. 🙏Chelo
