One fine day in Cork, Ireland…
We went to the (free!) art museum Crawford Art Gallery Cork on March 15, 2016. I also took pictures of parts of the downtown area.
In photo below – a man playing the violin outside the gallery… wonderful talent!
This next series of photos were taken inside the museum
The photo below is my personal favorite. I love how we share a common bond with humans from the past. Love transcends time, place, and culture – we love our babies, our families.
Savannah admiring the stained glass art
This painting appeals to me… Love and joy leaps off the canvas. The filtered sunlight as the seasons change and the children grow, the way that the mother looks on – her childhood long past, now feeling bittersweet about the passage of time. The children are so much work and worry, but she doesn’t want them to grow up. There is light and there are shadows in this piece, but you can almost hear the happy voices and laughter of the children… and that’s what makes this moment beautiful.
Nicholas headed the wrong way. He has sadly inherited my sense of direction. 🙁 Savannah, on the other hand, can find her way around anywhere.
One of the main Irish newspapers – The Irish Examiner
Headed back home – we live out past Blarney. We take the N20 all the way to Grenagh. This has been an exciting adventure, our new life in Ireland! Not sure what the future holds. Stay with me — one thing I know for sure, it won’t be boring!
