Ireland opens it’s doors and hearts to friends and family across the world. Calling all descendants, to come home, to celebrate in villages, towns and cities. A year-long celebration of Irish ancestry, restoring the spirit of it’s people. It made me think of gathering in a wider sense, of how thinly I have spread myself between family, home, creative interests and general day-to-day tasks.
I resolve to pull myself together, see what and where I can make changes. Focus, concentrate on fewer things, difficult enough under present circumstances, but those precious moments of stillness are gathering momentum, and I must gather all those mini-me’s out there, to return to the centre, undiluted.
Spreading ever more thinly
I let go –
and all things urgent,
in this one moment of eternity
