I’ve always felt how lucky I was growing up in Connemara in the fifties. To me, it was the last decade of the old ways. We were so much in tune with nature and had so much respect for the land and sea. We were a young country then, almost free at last, coming into our own–but all that changed with the advent of electricity coming in the sixties–and of course that once channel TV. T0 me that started the slippery slope of Humanity, our human radars are not in use anymore and we’re out of touch with Mother Earth. There was a time when we knew where the wind was coming from, unfortunately, that’s not the way of the world now.
I hope it’s not too late to relearn who we are and know which direction the wind is coming from and listen… Listen to each other… Listen to the Earth…Listen to everyone. Just listen.
