It is raining all the week: even the birds don’t want to sing any more. Everything is soaked with water. “Let’s there be light!”… There is no light, and the days a grey from morning to dusk. Not that I complain. It is a good enough time for photography.
I stop my car and take some pictures. Suddenly the hail storm begins, and in a blink of an eye the hailstones cover the front seat and dashboard while I am frantically scrolling the car window up. The hailstones are melting in my hands… My “models” run away. Oh well..
The firmament suddenly cleared and the light was restored. All the way across the pass, driving down to Clonmel, Tipperary, I had the voice of Lisa Gerrard in my head. As far as I could see, there was not a single human around. Low, heavy clouds and distant blue mountain tops; ravines filled with fog … This place is right for me.
I chose this video for my post – Gregory Colbert‘s study of interactions between humans and animals, and a beautiful song The Host of Seraphim by Dead Can Dance.
Now we walk down to the sea.
The sand trees are as fascinating as the frost flowers on the window glass.
Is it a message? I have a sinking and sobering feeling that there are countless messages of a great importance that we either miss or cannot read.
