It seems like it's been a long winter. The news has been filled with
images of earthquake and tsunami destruction in Japan, reports of
conflict in North Africa and the Middle East, accounts of the
sovereign debt crisis in Europe and profiles of the millions of
Americans who remain unemployed after the recession. As festive St.
Patrick's Day and the first day of spring approach, maybe now more
than ever it's time to keep the seasonal theme of
renewal in mind. This is a photo I took in Ireland
in the spring of 2000.
Remember what it was like back then? The world welcomed the
new millennium with a sense of optimism perhaps never seen before or
since. The Sept. 11 attacks, wars in Afghanistan and Iraq or "tech bubble"
burst hadn't yet occurred. It's easy to view
this idyllic setting of Kylemore Abbey in Connemara, County Galway
and feel a sense of peace. In recent times it's been difficult to
find either optimism or peace but they are feelings worth looking
for again right now. Rather than be paralyzed dwelling on the
negative news around us we can act to seek solutions. Give to the
Red Cross. Hire someone. Find beauty wherever it can be found. Many
more places in the world can and should again be as green as an
Emerald Isle countryside this spring.
