Behind the clouds

Those who gathered yesterday to see the sun rise at the burial tomb in Newgrange were disappointed, as the morning was cloudy, overcast and rainy. No sign of the sun, which in ancient times may have been quite frightening. A good lesson for us on the confidence we keep inside despite our changing moods. 

The sun doesn’t stop shining because some of us are blind.

The birds don’t stop singing because some of us are deaf.

The heart doesn’t stop loving because some of us are afraid.

What lets the flower in the forest bloom though no one is watching?
