A double rainbow out my kitchen door – I was almost tempted to head over the field with a shovel and start digging for the pot of gold. The day was like this – a ray of vivid hope in every situation. I cannot believe I have enrolled my eldest daughter in high school for this coming September. What a milestone for her – especially as she has been homeschooled by me for this past year. A brave little girl setting out into a brave new world. The new, amalgamated Bantry high school is going to forge ahead and open later this year. There are still mixed feelings about the school amongst parents – so many divided opinions that I think the Colaiste Pobail Bheanntrai warrants an entry of its own!
I found my favourite poem on a folded piece of paper in an old jacket pocket today. Some say that this is written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, who was a french author, journalist and pilot and others credit it as being anonymous. I love it – especially when you are not sure if what you are doing in life is the right thing. Or not.
