New Year Greetings
Weather is somewhat murky in County Wicklow today, but we’ve had some lovely sunny days recently…love that brightness and when it’s mild it also saves on the central heating. Went into the local Lidl the other day and bought some bargains, including a bunch of hyacinth flowers. Like the wildly varying products Lidl sells. For example on latest visit they were selling protective legware for horses being transported in horse-boxes.
Got two children’s books out of the library today….’The Incredible Book Eating Boy’ and ‘How To Catch A Star’ …both by Oliver Jeffers. Fabulous. Read them with a pal this afternoon while having a cappuccino in a convivial cafe.
January affects different people in different ways so here are some nice uplifting quotes:
‘I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.’ Hafiz Of Persia
‘Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.’ Rumi
‘You can’t stop the waves but you can learn to surf.’ Jon Kabat-Zinn
‘To be young, really young, takes a very long time.’ Picasso
Lots of love and sparkles,
