The time for sunshine is about to begin..... i hope

Lake road Ballingeary, like it?

For some reason i was reading about Buffalo Bill and maybe there is no reason, do i need one?

In New York outside the tattoo parlour the guy selling bongs was saying 'BOGOF', Buy one get one free, selling tactic to potheads i guess.

I wrote this one down a while back, by Eminem
What's going on in the world today?
People fighting, feuding, looting, it's ok
Let it go, let it flow,
Let the good times roll,
Tell 'em Dre
(Dr. Dre:)
It ain't nuttin' but music

I read recently 'The familiar, precisely because it is familiar is unknown', i would agree.
I was reading some TS Elliot quotes, which left a mark on my brain (a good thing)

Success is relative. It is what we can make of the mess we have made of things.
T. S. Eliot

And to sum Ireland up would be
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
T. S. Eliot

Quite true, quite true.

I was reading John O'Donohue he was saying about as a meditation practice.
'Meditation, to view yourself as a complete stranger someone who has stepped ashore in your life', quite true, interesting concept.

Captain Cook and Christopher come to mind when they discovered new worlds (It didn't matter to them that there was natives already there, they just classified them as animals, problem solved, hmmmm, one to think about. Up the flag goes, as Kurt Vonnegut would have said 'The sea pirates arrived', isn't the mind interesting?

Mass rock

These rocks were worshipped by the Celtic spiritualists , before Christianity hijacked them.

hehe, know that one, I actually lived in Ballingeary for 7 month a couple of year back... where all the signposts are in gaeltacht and the lady at the spar switches back to english only when she sees the non locals. :)

Must have missed that mass rock thingy... didn't miss gougane barra though! ;)
