Day 17: Beauty in a broken world

Quick question: do you believe in luck? St. Patrick’s Day has become infused with the concept of luck (and the color green). I was lucky—or perhaps just being observant—to happen upon a tree where someone had set a horseshoe. I promise it wasn’t me. Well, at least not the first time I saw it. It had fallen when I returned a few days later with my camera, and so I set it back on the tree. It has since fallen again, the tree triumphant in shaking off its unwanted guest.

I believe more in blessings than luck, and so I’ll offer you this Irish blessing:

May you always be blessed
With walls for the wind.
A roof for the rain.
A warm cup of tea by the fire.
Laughter to cheer you.
Those you love near you.
And all that your
Heart might desire.
