Sometimes You Don't Need Words

Do you ever feel like “Wow, it’s been a crazy week at work.” Where every day feels like it is one day further away from the weekend. I think we all know that feeling.

So there comes a point where you say “I need a break”. But, you have things to do, you have used up all your vacation time, you have maxed out your credit cards (I hasten to point out here that these are all hypothetical examples and not real life ones, honest!) so you need something to transport you back to a time when things were calm and serene and lovely.

That’s when I turn to this video.

It was shot in Glendalough in County Wicklow, Ireland.

I’ve been going to Glendalough for many years, ever since I was a kid but this was the first time I ever saw it in the spring, in sunshine. Normally it’s overcast,  or wet. It’s beautiful but with that kind of weather the beauty has a melancholy tinge. On this day it was simply divine. That’s why I love this little shot of a stream through the hills. It reminds me of a time that was more peaceful, and of a future time that will be so again.
