The richness of the moment
After eight years living in Sligo, I can honestly say that one spot from all the beaches, mountains, forests and glades that fills my heart and soul with inspiration and genuine awe is this constant frame of Lough Gill from what I call 'Sector 13' deep in the Hazelwood domain. I might only pause for a minute during my walk through the woods, or some days I'll sit and relish the astounding magic of Nature's womb, where the richness of the moment smothers me in a heartfelt cocoon of belonging, akin to being held by one's mother, when the deepest pain is soothed and banished by the one love you will only appreciate when it is gone.
If I die tomorrow, because there will come such a tomorrow, spread my ashes around this sublime spot and let me forever be a part of its glory.
