In The Middle Of Ireland.

We took a detour.

On our trip home from the south.

A blessed rest,

in the middle of Ireland.

We paused,

on the banks of Lough Derg,

in the quiet,

and contemplated.

And sometimes it's the balm you need,

just to pause.

And breathe for a moment.

The images you capture with your camera are wondrous. And full of magical narrative.

What amazing pictures! My son can't believe the one of your son in the tree. His words... "O.M.G.". Lovely post.

Wonderful. I know it is a different Lough Derg to the pilgrimage site, but it looks just as suitable a place for contemplation.
