The Plague

One of my friend’s has just finished reading The Plague by Albert Camus. Its the story of a plague sweeping the French Algerian city of Oran.

Another friend suggested I look like I’m about to go into a fighting scene of Game of Thrones. The series is filmed around Ballintoy Harbor close to where the picture above and below were taken.

It got me thinking about time, place, and courage. A lot of us are helping save lives by just obeying the stay home orders. And practicing solitude – (see previous post on Solitude and Leadership). It feels strange to be acting heroically or for the greater good, by just staying home. Yet that is what is saving lives.

I have sworn an oath of solitude until the pestilence is purged from the lands. How about you?

What are you learning about yourself in this season of self-isolation?

There’s wonderful sand dunes behind me in the picture below. Natural coastal defenses for Viking raids of the past. If they caught me they’d probably pull the silver fillings right out of my mouth 😊

I'm a life long learner. I've been on a voyage of discovery since childhood so ask why a lot. I'm Irish and a bit American. I write because its freeing and healing. I love photography, theology, the natural beauty of Ireland and swimming in the sea year round. I see the world through the lens of Celtic Christianity but can try on other perspectives. The business of everyday spirituality has always fascinated me. I hope this blog challenges, inspires and encourages you. Perhaps you'd like to work with me. Please reach out to me if that's the case. I'd love to hear from YOU so please comment and let me know you are out there!
