Please stop taking such wonderful photos with that camera! You're making me jealous! ;)

Ah, right. I had only just noticed that you could post other people's photos to facebook :-)

Hi Joan!

It makes me think of this- the finest bit of prose ever written: A few light taps upon the pane made him turn to the window. It had begun to snow again. He watched sleepily the flakes, silver and dark, falling obliquely against the lamplight. The time had come for him to set out on his journey westward. Yes, the newspapers were right: snow was ... See Moregeneral all over Ireland. It was falling on every part of the dark central plain, on the treeless hills, falling softly upon the Bog of Allen and, farther westward, softly falling into the dark mutinous Shannon waves. It was falling, too, upon every part of the lonely churchyard on the hill where Michael Furey lay buried. It lay thickly drifted on the crooked crosses and headstones, on the spears of the little gate, on the barren thorns. His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead.

Ah... "The Dead" by James Joyce.

What a perfect description of this photo, Gerry!

Thank for that Gerry - those words fit with this beautifully!
