What if you followed every inkling, hunch or hint at a possible good idea? If you stretched your legs out beyond your comfort zone? If you trusted that these inklings would become their own story?
On the misty drive through South Kilkenny, nothing to see, hidden landscapes. Favourite fields and places blanketed in fog. In the distance the great house invisible today. But up close, the trees loom out of the background. Their huge branches hugging the dim light.
The silence of life on this road. The twists and bends of rural life. The car door slams and the soft shoe shuffle of this wayfaring photographer saves the day. The vaguest hint of shape and shadow.
Following an inkling that it’s not all about light and certainty……

So happy that you stopped to venture into this magical place and love the word, inkling … don;t see it used enough.
Kilkenny has a lot of big trees and I love walking up close to them when the light is right! Thanks:~)

I see you are still following your inkling word. I am not sure how I am doing with my free but I am getting lighter and that is a start of sorts.
Lighter sounds great! I'm laughing as I am trying to work out whether you are lighter in body or spirit? Either is good in my book!

the silence of life…so beautiful…love inklings…
Thank you Robin!
Dear Catherine, I have been busy and away from websphere things for a while but the other day I followed an inkling, or rather a complete lack of resistance, and clicked on your update in my inbox. Thank goodness I did! It led me to downloading your inspiring book of beautiful images and words. I've decided that however busy I may believe I am, I need to take time for me too. Thank you so much!
I have noticed your absence Jane but I'm glad you are back and following your inklings too. Thank you so much for your kind words, are you blogging again? x

The moment and the beauty of so simple a subject matter. I wrote much about this on my other blog this week. A short reminder of Mindfulness that speak to me of what your photo says. http://www.bestillandknow101.wordpress.com Thanks for the photos. JC
Oh Catherine I love how this word is leading you to such beauty, adventure and wonder!
