with love from West Cork, Ireland (2002)

With love from West Cork

30.7.02 Just a quick ‘hi’. Hope all’s well. Had a nice week in Co. Waterford – splendid weather, fab scenery, coves, seals, beaches, jelly fish & v. friendly people. Farm was great & now over at Bantry Bay generally poking about. Lovely mussels & boys enjoying it all! Hope to see you after 5/8 – love to all – Alison + Bells

Here’s another message waxing lyrical about Ireland; Alison and the Bells certainly seem to be making the most of it 🙂 It looks very picturesque, however, for a professional shot, it is a shame that the horizon is not level!

The card is postmarked ‘DURAS 01.8.02′ and carries a 41 cent Europa stamp.  2002 was the inaugural competition for the best Europa stamp design.

I became friends with Alison when our children were small. We shared a love of encouraging play in the countryside and enjoyed many days of riverside picnics, water fights, dam building,  football and rounders matches.  These days Alison and I still meet regularly for walks, which inspire our art and poetry 🙂

  1. Another old friend. It’s so great that you do things together. You must be so comfortable together! (I only say that because my therapist and I were discussing my problem of not feeling comfortable around anybody last week.)😞


      • True. I’d prefer to keep my distance, but because of the bipolar I sometimes have poor judgement about things like that.

        I got your Dali postcards yesterday! I love them! When we went to visit the in-laws who live in Florida. We we to a Dali museum. Pretty cool!

        I didn’t expect that you’d link the drawing the best! I have fun drawing stuff like that but nobody seems to like them. Fun! I’ll draw some of the cards I sent. I’m working on ideas for next one!
