Finally! Glad to see you back.I've missed you.xo
Peaceful and beautiful.Breathing ;)Welcome half-back.
Claire, What a wonderful poem! I love the lines "At dusk, horizons drink down sea and hill,"--so apt to the Otago Peninsula , which I have been 'longing for' lately, although I'm sure heaney is referencing another peninsular.:) Good to have you back 'on blog' as well.

Dear Kass, Elisabeth, Elizabeth, Angella, Melissa, Therese, Ant. C., Helen, Fernando & Tearful. Thank you for your friendship out here and for your very welcome Welcome (half-) Back. Onwards we go. . . happy to know we're still in it together, that there's room for coming and going._/\_
Hi Claire,Did enjoy this and it went so well with Seamus Heaney's poem. I reminded me so much of returning to NZ one evening past the Otago Peninsula with the shags arrowing in to land through the pastel light. Somewhat eye watering memories.
Hi Barry - thanks for coming by. 'the shags arrowing in to land'. . . love that! I enjoyed visiting your blog this morning, too. Do you know this Seamus Heaney line - 'The sea is the land's edge also?' (It's somewhere in his collection 'The Spirit Level', I think.).
Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?I mean, what you say is important and all. However just imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog could certainly be one of the greatest in its niche. Awesome blog!Here is my web page ... bathroom in northern virginia
