[at home, tom is the boss]
i'm finally back working again albeit part-time. which is good because it means i still have time to pursue what i really want to do - taking photographs. i don't know how long it will take me until i feel good about my own photographs but i'll get there. someday. anyhoo, with jobs so difficult to find if not impossible at all with the current economic climate, i'm very happy to be working again. every little penny counts!
we finished early today at work so i walked through St. Stephen's Green for a bit of peace in the midst of the noise of the city. and to people-watch. i ended up watching these cheeky pigeons awaiting bits from someone's lunch. very entertaining i must say!
lovely carriage outside St. Stephen's Green. i spy a wool blanket on the seat!
walking towards my bus stop, a huge chalkboard along O'Connell Street caught my eye. i just saw it today and i spent a good while reading. i looked it up online soon as i got home and learned that it's an I AM AFRAID project by meandhimandyou with ABSOLUT Fringe.
here's what it's all about (from their website):
There is a feeling of fear and uncertainty in our country. As a result of the greed of a select few, the majority of the Irish public are afraid. They are afraid of losing their jobs, afraid of never finding a job, afraid of not being able to pay back loans, afraid their kids will have to emigrate, to name just a few. The Irish public face many challenges today, as a result there is an urgent need for radical change, new ideas, imagination and inspiration in Irish society. How much stronger would the city feel if everybody shouts their fears. Therapy on a city scale.
and for our final picture of the day:
true, true...couldn't agree more!
