Evening

In love with the blues...

In love with the blues…

When we have the privilege to return, over years, to the same exquisitely beautiful place, our hearts and minds fill with all the layers of what we have seen. This tree, these bushes, this lake and far shore, this setting sun, these clouds are uniquely wedded to the moment, and yet recognizable as the ever-changing elements of place. The drama of change is endlessly giving to the artist’s eye. Imagine standing here with a loved one, viewing a flaming pink sunset, or a grey wall of rain, or the billions of stars in the night sky. Imagine yourself here in childhood, youth, middle age, old age. To be in the moment in this place, to see and feel, to project and receive love in communion with others, such is the human capacity for fulfillment in the midst of fleeting time.

    Funny about the rain! Oh, my, yes…I can only imagine the sensation of returning repeatedly to Connemara. and of having that place layered within you. In Ireland, you inhabit realms of unimaginable beauty. How grand to be human and to have the gift of perception. Thank you for your comment, Eileen!
