I needed a bit of warmth and these Satsumas are as warm as it’s gonna get here this week. 8×8 oil on canvas bord.[singlepic id=799 w=400 h=400 float=]
The snow has been a welcome relief from the constant bad news here. Of course it’s grinding the country to a halt and economically that’s like another slap to a man already down but apart from how beautiful it makes everything seem, it does also have the effect of bringing out the best in us. I know that in itself is a cliche but that makes it all the more touching to see it happen.
Last night a woman was stuck sliding in her car on Lesson Bridge. A guy in a big car behind stopped, got out and pushed her car across the bridge on his own. It was Brian O’Driscoll (probably Ireland’s most famous Rugby player). Not too posh to push then!
Here in our estate (neighbourhood) people have been out helping each other, digging snow, pushing cars, spreading grit. God, it’s good to see. It makes you feel like everything will be OK in the world![singlepic id=800 w=400 h=400 float=]
