A Light Lunch In The Green

Published by at 4:28 pm under Blog

I picked up my bagel and a new pair of sunglasses and whiled away my late lunch in St Stephen’s Green. After a few minutes of wandering, I found a free bench and sat to watch the world go by. What a great day and a great life I have.

Okay, the sunshine is unlikely to give me a tan and if I took off my coat, I’d probably catch a cold, but this is Ireland – anyone waiting for the good weather to enjoy their day will die very unhappy. There is a light breeze and a warm sun – what could be nicer.

I love people-watching and to watch a mother worry about her toddler who is chasing pigeons, to watch a young couple laughing together in the grass, to watch three businessmen kick a football around, to watch two people dancing around the gazebo is a wonderful experience and disintegrates all cynicisms. I could sit here all day and smile at the goings on.

But, alas, I must go back to work. I must once again join the hustle and bustle of Dublin City centre.

    It’s years since I’ve been in Dublin.

    The last time I was there I was like a child in a toy shop. I didn’t know where to look next.

    It was a fleeting visit …. a meeting with the Minister for Education and Science in Dáil Éireann. Twas Michael Woods …. boy was he arrogant and nasty. We ran from the train. We rushed to the meeting. We ran to the train. Gone. And home.

    The architecture is overwhelming. Not having friends, business or a reason to be in Dublin means that I hardly ever (close to never) venture as far as the Pale.

    The sheep is Kerry see more of me that I’ll ever see of Dublin!

    Sad I know …. but c’est la vie!
