An Irish Welcome

Céad Míle Fáilte friend and rover ...
Wherever you come from and whosoever you may be.
That's an Irish greeting and it means

you are welcome
a thousand times over.

Now is the time to ... gaze at the winter trees

"May such calm of soul be mine, so as to meet the force of circumstances"
-- Aescylus (circa 525-456 BC)

gaze at the winter trees

They may look sad without their leaves.
But look beyond the bare branches.
They signal nature's comforting cycles.
They represent the sure sign of regrowth.
They will blossom and bear fruit.

We all have our seasons.
