I know I’ve been quiet these last few months but I’m back now. I had to step away for a while due to an illness in my family. Sometimes when things are running smoothly, life can change very quickly. It’s like that old expression, ‘no news is good news’. Still, when it comes down to it, it makes us appreciate the good stuff and the people we love in our lives.
During this time, I spent many mornings on Portmarnock beach with old friends that I hadn’t seen in ages. There’s something so healing about being beside the sea when there is turmoil in your life, it’s interesting how we always turn to nature when times are tough. It was very different to the silent swims I’m used to here in the west, Saturday morning beach discos were new to me and I’m back now to the silence. I came back to the west with a head full of new ideas for new designs so keep an eye out for new work coming up.
Someone once told me that the secret to happiness is to want what you have.
