Thursday Thoughts

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.

  1. Wow Val, must have been really unnerving, bless your heart. xx. Obviously this tortured soul had no inkling of your recent events but her timing couldn’t have been much worse could it. Horrible situation for you, but just as rough for her, can’t begin to imagine every waking moment being so confused and angry, and by the sounds of things she doesn’t sleep well either. Do hope she’s given some help, you never know, causing your traumatic experience could actually be the first decent thing she’d instigated in a long time if she’s found and given the help that’s needed. Got to find a silver lining somewhere! xxx Hope you’re feeling less stressed about it now and also that the car isn’t damaged.

  2. Art is very relaxing for me. Sculpture became a passion and works like the best therapy in the world for me. Have a nice weekend Val !!!
