Today I have internet! YAY!! I arrived safe and excited! What a wonderful trip this has been, and how excited that I can share it all with you!
Yesterday was a loooonnngggg day. We took a red eye over, and that was killer. But we caught some sleep on a bus then boat ride to our now home at Aran Islands on the far west of Ireland territory. It is beautiful. I made some videos for you, and I am going to keep them coming. This will be a video posting to the max (something I am going to try to do more of). You too can live my experience…well at the very least see it!
And I forgot to mention in the video that the island we are staying on is so far away from the mainland we cannot see Ireland any more! It is off in to the horizon, which reminds me of a great picture I took for you!
That is the horizon. The clouds and sky bend around with the dropping water and earth to form our globe. It is stunning. Just think of the world and sky that makes this globe we live on. Have you ever really thought about that? That this is a globe? Have you then looked at the horizon as far as you can see, without interference (uni-tasking), thinking about how it really just bends. Go that way and we can travel the world in a loop, but we aren’t staying flat. There is a lesson in there I think. Nothing is what we perceive. There is so much to this wonderful world that we simply don’t take the time or effort to discover. What if we slowed down and discovered something, anything? What if we decided to take something in our world and play with it? What wonderful ideas, and art, and happiness could we derive from doing this? I write this after recently reading & watching SuperForester Patricia’s post on education, so my mind is on a role of limitless possibilities, and even more limitless questions! Enjoy today, for we only live today, only in the present. Of course (and I do feel it needs to be said) let your mind reflect on yesterday and then dream of what tomorrow could be.
Well back to my wonderful Ireland trip! Today we visited Dún Aonghasa, as I say in the video, which one of the oldest historical forts in the world! And it is something else. So here is the next segment in my video posting!
In an effort to keep this post more focused and uni-tasked here is a link about Dún Aonghasa if you want to learn more about this wonderful and historic place. This is such an exciting time, I cannot wait to share more of it with you! And before I go I would like to say it was timely that in SuperForester Patricia’s post it was wonderful that Sir Ken Robinson read a William Yeats poem! I will find and share some more Yeats poems, and I thought of instead you searching for them I will provide them for you! So, here is Yeats’s poetry featured on SuperForest!
Enjoy, enjoy! Until the next time wonderland SuperForest!
I love you all,
