Pigeon, Flying Away

Yesterday, Near Dublin Castle
Yesterday, in a Park Near Dublin Castle

Self is re-reading John O’Donohue’s poetry collection Conamara Blues.

The first section, “Approachings,” begins with quotes by Hélene Cixous, Hans Magnus Enzensberger, and Naomi Shihab Nye.

Love the quote from Cixous:

I want to watch watching arrive.
I want to watch arrivances.

Self was at the Chester Beatty Library yesterday until closing.

She then decided to sit in a little circular park to rest before catching a bus back to her B & B.

For some reason, there was a whole pod of pigeons in restless flight around a nearby bush.  So self waited.  And waited.  And waited some more.  Until she finally caught the rustle of a wing almost directly above the bench where she was sitting.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
