light and peace

Stormy weather has howled across Dublin, leaving no leaves on trees, fences knocked over, garden tables strewn across lawns.

It's winter, we're cold and it seems to always be dark or half dusk.

We crave light and sun and an end to the evenings.

And then, after hard work and visits to the attic or the depths of the store-cupboard, a plug is put in the socket, the electricity surges. Flats and council houses flicker and sparkle with the shiny christmas lights.
