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.
