More Magical Book Sculptures

I posted some of this artist's work over on my Book Blog, but couldn't resist showing some more. She is utterly amazing. Her name is Su Blackwell and here's the link to see more of her work and read all about her: That leads you to Stainless Steel Droppings, a magical site. Here's her own website: You know, I'm thinking of writing to her and asking her may I send her a copy of one of my fairy books. I'd love to see what she would do with it!

Roving Soles

Have joined a second hill-walking group as I like the idea of quick hikes into the mountains during the long evenings of summer sunlight. We did the Glencree Valley last night, walking for about two hours until 10:30 p.m. It was still bright at that time. Next Tuesday we head up the Sugar Loaf. Will post the photos when Pat gets around to emailing them to me. I can't use my camera as I have lost the battery recharger. Drat. I'm sure it's somewhere in the house but who has time to look for it? As to why I am so busy ... you will have to check out my Book Blog.

Circuit of Lough Dan

Well, since I broke my word and blogged on the Book Blog might as well follow suit here. Just got these photos in from Ger Blake, the fearless captain of my hill-hiking group. This was our June walk around Lough Dan in the Wicklow Mountains (more of The Light-Bearer's Daughter territory). That's me crossing the river in white and my sistah, Pat, in front.

Break Time

Taking a break from blogging. My head is full of the two books I am writing with nothing left over for reflective thought. Hoping to go on a little skite around Ireland in the coming weeks which will be my summer holidays (the only possibility right now given too much work and too little money!) Have a good summer y'all, wherever you be.
