Little Ghosts In The Orchard.

Being back in Dun Laoghaire college of art, as it used to be known,
did strange things to my heart.

It's where we met, 19 years ago.

It has changed so much since then, in places, unrecognisable.
But, then, around a corner,
there, something familiar,
a hallyway, a stairway, an orchard.



I see our ghosts,
young and carefree and on top of the world.

My Husband went to college in IADT and always talks fondly of 'the orchard'!

It's a lot less wild these days! In fact myself and my friends used to sneak in and rob apples from the Christian Bros. when we were kids, long before it was an art college!
I wonder was your husband there when we were?

Oh, that is so sweet. It is lovely that you have that place together. Does it register with the kids that that is where is all began?
