It’s a week since mum’s funeral. My sleeping patterns are still a bit all over the place. I was up early so I headed off to the Lough Gill viewing point, one of my favourite places in Sligo. Only today I wasn’t alone.
I parked the car and a woman started walking towards me. I wound down my window in case she wanted directions. She asked me how much I was being paid to harass her, I was very taken aback. She carried on walking and started throwing stones at my car and raising her fist to me. I was very shaken I have to say. I phoned the guards just in case she started throwing stones at other people. They were very nice and took all the details but I didn’t hear anything else. I’m sure she has some kind of issue but it was scary at the time.
The day didn’t end up all bad though. I went to an art group in The Open Door Studio and Art Gallery, Rathcormac. I can’t rate this studio highly enough, both Poilin and Tan are so encouraging. What could be better than art, tea, cake and chats?
I find art so relaxing, it’s a great way for me to clear my head and settle down. If you are in Sligo there’s a drop in morning at the studio on a Thursday. You can find out more by contacting the studio.
