3 rainbow day


steps in the Kells garden

Where might these steps be leading you?

wild thing in the Kells garden

perhaps to this happy wild thing in the Kells garden

water lilly

or this water lilly

bird in the Kells garden

or this cute small bird of Ireland

our first beach labyrinth
or this beautiful labyrinth made by me on the Kells beach and modeled on the one we walked in Glendalough – by now, with the tide coming in, it has been washed away beneath the waters of Dingle Bay

one of three rainbows we saw this afternoon

one of three magnificent rainbows we saw this afternoon over the beach at Kells Bay

other end- same rainbow

one end of this rainbow was on the beach (maybe the labyrinth?) and the other end was in the water of the Bay . . . such an extravagant arc of covenant

May the wind loosen all tautness.
May the salt air cleanse.
May the sand give certainty.
May the rainbow remind of God’s presence always and always.

  2. The beauty of your words and your pictures are a real blessing.


    1. Beautiful photography and such loving words.
      Me think we should go to Ireland.


  3. Such awesome beauty – you make it come alive for us! Thank you!


  4. You are, daily, reintroducing us to Ireland. And increasingly I understand why Irish literature is so filled with spiritual reference, as well as spirituality. I need to return to some of the old pieces. While you were in Dublin, I was with James Joyce. Now although the area is not the same I think Yeats. Thanks for awakening some of that again.


  5. If you ever lose your day job, you can become a photographer and a writer. You do both beautifully. Jill
