Horizon far too near today as the mist covered our land; only the trees at the bottom of the garden could be seen and how I wished ; I could stay here and watch as the mist arose and unveiled the scenes around me but alas I had to go and catch a train you know.

Ballyhaunis Train Station Nov.26th 2014

Ballyhaunis Train Station Nov.26th 2014

The drive to the station started to promise that more of my surroundings would be unveiled in time and as I; noisily, I might add ,tried to park the car for space was tight; my frustration at the lack of space was heard and a very kind gentleman offered to guide my parking , in the end I gave him the keys and he did a wonderful job of parking my car, the world is full of lovely people you know.
A lot of women on the train today and I wondered and hoped they were all happy , some looked sad , some looked like they needed a friend and others smiled and chatted for a little while, one lovely lady was going to the hospital the following day for her check up and as she shared a little I knew she was a little sad and she knew that I shared her fear for a moment or so , I am so grateful that I was able to wish her well .
When one lives in the country here you just know that some of the people on the train to Dublin are going to visit a hospital for themselves or someone dear to them and as you look around you can be sure that many of these women have chosen to go alone and to offer a smile can often lift a heart for a moment; so I am grateful that my trip was not in vain and I do so hope I lessened someone’s pain.

Now dear reader do not think I spent the time on the train smiling at people, no just one or two; most of my time was spent with gadgets , laptop, phone , iPod and checking my ticket and then my glasses , and pouring out my coffee as I tried in vain to download some meditation music onto the silly iPod that just is proving to be far too small for me to handle . I have big hands and the iPod is tiny , maybe when my son comes home at Christmas he can help me sort out the Pod. Don’t you just hate letting technology get the better of you ?
To crown it all my phone died and just before the train stopped at Dublin too , and that’s when facebook came to the rescue; luckily my laptop held enough charge for me to make my arrangements for a meeting with a client and so my day was saved .
After the meeting I was  a little sad to leave Dublin without having a good long visit with family there but sure there is tomorrow and tomorrow again so happily this will be soon and I am so looking forward to it.
This post is more of a diary post really so I hope dear reader you understand some days are just days that start in a mist and remain in mist and it’s up to us to add some drama to the mist.

  1. “some days start in a mist and remain in a mist and it’s up to us to add some drama to the mist” I like that, Kathy. Drama in the mist. It sounds beautiful and sometimes, I guess, the mist can be very beautiful. It’s all about perspective. Blessings….Nina
