Which Way Is Up?

Ireland 2_0014
Have you ever taken a picture, then gone back and totally forgotten what it is, what angle it was taken from, and even which side is up?  Well, here is an example of just such a picture.  I know that it was taken in Powerscourt Gardens in Wicklow, and I know that the year was 2001.  That’s about all I know.  🙂  I have posted it in the direction that seems the most likely, but who knows really?  Anyway, I thought it would be fun to get feedback….is it the right way?  What is it?  Chime in and tell me what it is I’m looking at!  If you don’t know, make up something interesting to make me laugh!  Slainte, Lisa

A Heart That Understands

“There is much satisfaction in work well done; praise is sweet, but there can be no happiness equal to the joy of finding a heart that understands.”  ~Victor Robinson

Two Peas in a Pod

Ed & I in Powerscourt Gardens

I woke up this morning feeling a little tired.  As I made my way downstairs to assemble the morning lunch sak sandwiches, I glanced over at my husband.  He was feeling the same way; I could tell without having to ask a word.  We gave each other the space we needed to wake up slowly.  That’s how we are…we are two peas in a pod.  Two sailors navigating the same boat.  Two lovers lost in a haze of joy and rapture.  Two friends talking about the same joys and hurts and hopes.  I know….enough with the cliches already!  There is never a good and perfect way to talk about love.  You just know when it’s right and true, and you know that it’s the thing that you want to protect and cherish at all cost.  So honey, if you’re reading this, know that I cherish you.  I hope you are waking up out there in the big bad working world, and making a difference for all those people in the Nuba mountains.  I’m proud of you, and I’m glad to share this pod with you. “Always remember to forget the troubles that passed away. But never forget to remember the blessings that come each day.” – N. McCarthy, Irish blessing Slainte, Lisa
