I’ve been dreaming of going back to the Aran Islands lately. I can’t think of a more beautiful place to be. I’ve been planning the days for when I can spend a few months there each year. First thing in the morning, get up and go wandering. Take lots of photos while exploring. Have a hot chocolate in a small cafe and immerse myself in the little villages. Find my way back to my hide away where I can then spend the afternoon writing. Dinner time, hopefully head down to the local pub and enjoy a beautiful meal with a few wines in front of the open fire and soak up the atmosphere and music. Then back to snuggle down and listen to the waves crashing against the shore until I doze off, ready to start the whole process again in the morning. Weekends, I’d like to do a bit of island hopping. Make sure I have time to explore all three islands and occasional trips over to the mainland of Ireland. Oh to be back there again. Did I ever tell you how much I loved Inis Mór?
Live like someone left the gate open.
The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same, yet our lessons come from the journey not the destination
A land without ruins is a land without memories.
All of the animals, except for man, know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it.
Come fairies take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame
Before you speak let your words pass through three gates.. The first gates asks Is It True? The second gates asks Is It Necessary and the third gates asks Is It Kind
Living beauty feeds our souls and creative instincts by giving us inspiration.
Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and just enjoy the journey
May the sound of happy music and the lilt of Irish laughter fill your heart with gladness
When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me. Speaking words of wisdom. Let it be.
Those who make it in life are those who aren’t afraid to walk on rocky ground to get where they need to go
Rise above the storm and you will find the sunshine
We are all just walking each other home
Wherever you go, go with all your heart
I don’t know where I’m going but I’m on my way
Stones in the road? I save every single one of them and one day I’ll build a castle
Kindness unlocks doors that were thought to be closed forever
I can envision a small cottage somewhere with a lot of writing paper, a dog, a fireplace and enough money to give myself some Irish coffee and entertain my friends
The best things in life are not things
May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder
Never say dreaming is a waste of time. We build our tomorrow’s on today’s dreams.
Everyone can identify with a fragrant garden with the quiet of nature and a warm and cozy cottage
May your joys be as deep as the oceans, Your troubles as light as it’s foam
I always find beauty in things that are odd and imperfect. They are much more interesting
So she decided to start living the life she imagined
Faith is seeing light with our heart when all your eyes can see is darkness
The light at the end of the tunnel is not an illusion. The tunnel is.
It is life, I think, to watch the water. A man can learn so many things
On a windswept hill by a billowing sea. My destiny sits and waits for me.
You are confined only by the walls you build yourself
Life is not a matter of milestones but of moments.
It’s better to cross the line and suffer the consequences than to just stare at that line for the rest of you life.
the man who has no sense of history is like a man who has no ears or eyes
And in the morning, I’m making waffles
She was free in her wildness, She was a wandress, a drop of free water. She belonged to no man and to no city
Sometimes we miss the signs, even if they’re right in front of us
Hitch your wagon to a star.
You can’t use up creativity. The more you use the more you have
Even when the sky is filled with clouds the sun still shines above it.
Sometimes you have to be really high up to see how small you are
Just remember when you’re over the hill you start to pick up speed.
but all of this success comes at the end of a long climb
Old places have soul
History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it
If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door
When the why is clear, the how is easy
For happiness one needs security but joy can spring like a flower even from the cliffs of despair
I slept in castles and fell in love because I was taught to dream
If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way
Every new day is another chance to change your life
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail
Define your limits then defy them
You can’t know how far you can go unless you try to go too far
Take the journey, even if it means alone
A cottage would hold as much happiness as would stock a palace
I think we ought to live happily ever after
Watch me build my castle with the stones you threw at me. You can’t break me if i don’t let you.
May your troubles be less and your blessings be more. May nothing but happiness come through your door
There is always something to be grateful for
