  1. Yesterday I spoke with 21 men of varying ages (one at a time), all suffering from spiritual, intellectual, affectional, and physical desolation. I needed your post today to help quell a lingering and inexplicable sadness.


  2. Dear Tom, I think my post today must have been prompted especially for you, I hope your sadness is short lived. The picture of the tiny Burren leaf-stem, was not a recent one, but it has always been a favourite of mine. The vulnerability of something so fragile, pushing it’s way upwards and into what appears at first sight to be a barren landscape, and then to find itself surrounded with incredible beauty where only the strongest survive, is a truly magnificent achievement. God Bless.


  3. Thank you Virgilio, the burren leaf seemed such a fragile little thing, I pressed it in a book and when it was completely dried, I took the photograph. This was many years ago but I have only just found the right words for it, at least they seemed right to me. A Haiku.
