Return to grain . . .
Does the world return to grain? Traveling through the medieval walled city of Athenry, Ireland. (Baile Átha an Rí,), I made the journey to this abandoned horse barn and enjoyed a moment of just being still among the objects that were left behind.

The story of my recent life . . .
“'The story of my recent life.' I like that phrase. It makes more sense than 'the story of my life', because we get so many lives between birth and death. A life to be a child. A life to come of age. A life to wander, to settle, to fall in love, to parent, to test our promise, to realize our mortality- and in some lucky cases, to do something after that realization.”

The road is life . . .
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride! "

sky writer . . .
“She decided to free herself, dance into the wind, create a new language. And birds fluttered around her, writing “yes” in the sky.”
The stance . . .
“Body language speaks much more succinctly and honestly than mere spoken words.”
The Cross of Spancil Hill is Ireland's oldest horse fair and is held once a year on June 23rd. It is one of my favorite places to photograph as the culture is rich, the people are wonderful and the horses are grand!
