Place . . .
Why do we return to a place? Memory? Connection? A sense of belonging? Perhaps a little of all three. I return to this iron gate. This special place in Lahinch, County Clare, Ireland is the home of John Leahy. Situated high above the wild Atlantic ocean, the Leahy family have tended the farm and animals here for generations. This iron gate was first shown to me by Eoin Leahy, age 10 as he was giving me a tour of his backyard play-work ground. It is a quiet, wind blown place where the astounding views bring my mind to unexpected places, but it also takes me to places that I already know.
