Living on the edge

The stakes are much higher
But so are the rewards!

Mná na hEireánn

“Women of Ireland”
is a non political drawing
of the four green fields of Ireland
Which are the four provinces
Ulster, Munster, Connacht and Leinster
“Mná na hEireann” refers
to the wealth of beautiful and strong
Irish women who fill both
our history and our legends alike

Fresh Start

A clean page – An empty Jar
No others to tell you what to do
or when to do it
The first time you get your own space
is magic!
The second time is even better

Missing You

When I am with you
I am stronger – I am happy
When you leave
I think about you
All the time
When we are apart
I feel alone
even in a crowd
……… I miss you

If I can dream

There are no more words required
The picture says it all
If you can still dream
Then you will be OK!

What friends are for

To be there – when you need them
No matter how small the need
Or how great the need
A good friend is there – always

P.S. They can not always save you – but they can always listen

Friendship

Friendship is an invisible bond
between two
It is made up of ‘give’ and ‘take’
and ‘compromise’
When you need support………
There is someone there to help you out
……no matter what

Tara

The Tara Brooch dates from the 8th century
It is on display in the National Museum
In this drawing the fabric of people
into which the pin is set
represents the centuries of people
who have worn, owned or touched the brooch
One is inclined to imagine just
what this small piece of metal
has seen and experienced
and what tales of Ireland it could tell,
if it had a voice………

Good Luck

Reaching 21 is not just an other birthday…..
so they say!!!
Up till now there has been someone telling you
what you can and can not do
As a baby when to sleep – when to be awake
when to eat
As a toddler what you can and can not break
or even touch!
As a school child what to learn and how to learn it
As a teen-ager how and whom
to start a relationship with
Later you find out for yourself just how far
to push the barriers and what to rebel against
Then one day it all changes!
With only about 7670 days of practice
You are deemed ready to do it yourself
You can now sleep when and with whom you want
eat and drink what you Want…but
You can touch and break what you want…………but
What or if you want to learn
becomes your choice……….but
The choice of partner is now expanded
to include the whole world…………but
There are no barriers
except those you put on yourself……….and
………………………………………..Only this
one rule remains!
You are now legally and morally
responsible for all your own actions
From now on the buck stops with you!
Whatever you want – See it all – Do it all and be it all – but
………..Be selective and have a great life
(“Good luck” Just in case you need it)

I’ve done it

Passing an exam – Academic or otherwise
is the most wonderful feeling.
To have been judged by ones peers
to be good enough after weeks – months
even years of learning and endless practice
is fantastic – brilliant and marvelous!
But I wonder if a thought ought to be spared
for those who also wait for the result
Those who care passionately
wether we pass or fail
Those who walk the floor
waiting for the phone to ring
Constantly checking the time
nervously drinking or chain smoking or praying
One with her ears covered
and another with his head in a cardboard box
Driven to distraction by the waiting
and at the same time
afraid to hear the result………….
The words “I’ve done it” shouted
while floating from cloud nine
are greeted with “Congratulations”
and “I never doubted you”
And perhaps it is because of those very people
who care so much
that the feelings of joy are so great!
So if you’ve just done it –
“Well done”

Gone fishing

When the work load is unending
When the years race by
When queues for everything are growing
When the noise is deafening
When the traffic isn’t moving…………….
I think of Reginald Perrin
Maybe he had the right idea
He just carried it a little too far
When it all gets too much
Do leave all the hassles behind on the shore
and go fishing!
Just remember to leave a note!
