Wexford Sights (XXII)


I'm far too depressed to write anything lengthy, but with the aim of keeping this blog at least partly alive, I might as well post something for November. The top picture is of a redshank, captured using the furthest possible zoom on my camera; the bottom is of a dead dog washed up on Tinaberna Strand a few weeks back. Here's a song:

Sometimes, my friend, I wish I were a magician ...

[For quite a while my fingers hesitated to type the following, D.E., but then hope won that my words will be taken as they are meant.]

Given that most of us, readers and commenters, do just feel helpless, not knowing what to write, how to react, here's the plain question:
Do you cry for help, D.E.?
And if so: How could not anyone, but perhaps some or one (of us) help?

Please take care of and be kind to yourself.
The peace of the night.

Your photographs are - as almost always - both good and impressive.

My depression (which I do not mean in a clinical sense) is caused by current events, but I hope to assuage it by going to the protest march in Dublin tomorrow. Like all of us, I am worried both for my immediate future and the future of this country (and continent, and planet), but, on the other hand, I went for a walk in the forest near me this morning and was, as always, stunned by the glory of simple nature. It is a long way from bouts of depression to despair, and I'm nowhere near that stage yet, thankfully! Your concern is most appreciated - there is still warmth in this ever-colder world - but as long as I have my copies of Singing In The Rain and The Wizard of Oz (amongst others) finding reasons to be cheerful is not a problem! I'm glad you like the pictures.

Ha, D.E.! Imagine me being at your side, tomorrow, or ... carrying me on your back. :)

See the details within complexity?

Within the complexity my first thought with you. :)

Good luck.

... to not (further) confuse other readers/(potential) commenters herewith I do shut up.
Time to write what is overdue, i.e. an e-mail, hm? :)

You're good! Lucky to catch that bird so precariously standing. The poor mutt...Wonder what happened. Great photos.

Truly like the music group. Fascinating, repetitive tune. Couldn't catch the lyrics.

Echoing Sean: Take care, friend. Be kind to yourself.

I know, Claudia, the poor dog ... In these harsh times people need to come first, of course, but this doesn't mean cruelty or abuse of animals can be ignored!
