'Racetrack Reflections'
(Archived on Saturday - March - 06/03/2021 )

  Go To Previous Record Go To Next Record
  After recent flooding at the end of February I dug deep into the archive to pull out this photo to share today. It was taken back in 2008.
The picture was taken on the Mallow/Killarney road, near Mallow, Co.Cork (Irl)
It is hard to believe that this is the Cork/Mallow horse racetrack. This photo was taken the day the river Blackwater burst its banks. After a deluge of rain the river poured onto the racetrack and worse again into Mallow a few miles upstream. As the day came to a close the skyline generated enough light to cast beautiful reflections across the water. Far off in the distance to the right, one of the jumps can be seen surrounded by the flood waters.

'We buy junk and sell antiques!' ~Sign outside a country shop

Where would we be without a sense of humour. Antiques are a thriving business. What we might see as junk is a beautiful and priceless antique to someone else. Every one of us has junk we could throw out or even recycle! Getting rid of what's old and stale has always been an important part of any spiritual journey. Such junk could be described as hurts, grudges, anger, hatred, jealousy, cynicism, mistakes made, to mention only a few. All of this junk can never become an antique. They are corrosive over time and are simply no use to anyone. God is always gently encouraging us to get rid of such junk. In its place we welcome God's invitation to new beginnings and possibilities no matter how small.
