It's Been A While....

It's been a while since I've written here.
We've had the promise of spring. Warm sunny days, lengthening evenings, spring flowers and new lambs.

And then winter returned. Cold wind howling around the house,  frost and snow on the hills and even  here close to the sea.
St Patrick's Day has come and gone. Crowds lined the streets for the annual parade. Faces glum from the cold or from Ireland's continuing misfortunes.
A celebration of culture and traditions, the old and the new, young and old.
Tomorrow is Daffodil Day, so if you live in Ireland, please support this worthy cause and help the fight against cancer.

Meeting Life Head On

I've been as busy as a bee of late, both at home and at work.
There are unfinished conversations in cyberspace, un-posted cards in my handbag,  uncompleted chores on my 'to do' list, unplanted flowers and unwashed windows.
But Spring is here with the promise of warmth, of  sunshine, and of long days with more hours for dreaming and doing.
How did we ever dream that we could have it all? Time for career, family, passions and obsessions.
It's not that the dreamers were wrong,  just that the dream wasn't shared.
