Saturday afternoon

Every now and then when the sun is beating down, the cloud that blankets the rooftops with angry oppression has lifted and we see that the sky is actually something other than the colour of cold, wet ash, sometimes in these rare moments of happy tranquility Dublin's not such a bad place to be after all.

Its October. I spent the early afternoon sitting in the Iveagh Gardens and almost had the place to myself. One or two folks sat around the sunken lawn giving each other a respectful distance, everyone too busy soaking up the silence to disturb it with unnecessary chatter. In the centre a lone figure practiced Capoeira, the only sound rising about the breeze his feet as they planted themselves on the grass. Hard. Solid. Thud.

Its October. Not such a bad place to be after all.
