Ever since I have not been in a regular 9-5 job, Monday's have taken on a whole different meaning for me.
I have a pilgrimage these Monday's, which involves journeying through the heart of Connemara.
The journey is always quite breathtaking, however many times I seem to travel it. This week seems a little more poignant than usual, for it was this week that the IPCC published it's report on Global Warming.
Every now and again it is good to pause, open our eyes, take it all in, see our connection to the land and think about what we are doing to it - Exhale and proceed with a renewed vigour to cherish and work in harmony with that, which gives us life.
Let's not take for granted the beauty which surrounds us.
Let's allow our children and the generations that follow the same priviledges we enjoy.
Global Warming is a FACT. Let's wake up to it.
