(Archived on Thursday - June - 01/06/2017 )

  Go To Previous Record Go To Next Record
  Photo was taken at Gougane Barra, West Cork (Irl)  
 
There was a big gorse fire at Gougane Barra during the month of April.
On April 26th (http://www.2u.ie/detail.php?id=3123) I had a picture up here, taken on the day after the fire, with a black mountain and smoke still rising in a few places. I took today's photo during the week and you can see how the mountain has recovered with a fresh carpet of growth all over the mountain thanks to recent rain and warm weather.

 

Thought on Thursday - June - 01/06/2017

Last week Graduation Ceremonies took place in many secondary schools across Ireland. The following reflection called 'Promise Yourself' was read at Col"iste Pobail Bheanntra" (Bantry Community College) on Thursday evening

Promise Yourself

Promise yourself to be comfortable and at ease in what you really believe in.
Promise yourself to make all your friends feel that they are worthwhile and special.
Promise yourself to think only the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.
Promise yourself to be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
Promise yourself to learn from the mistakes of the past and to welcome the blessings of today.
Promise yourself to be as upbeat as you can and to give a smile whenever you can.
Promise yourself to be generous with your time and to spend less time wrapped up in criticism or negativity.
And finally promise to be proud of who you are, to let no one take away what is special to you and to always let your light shine.
