In Ireland the weather we shall always have with us. And we would not have it any other way! We like to talk about the weather. It makes a nice ice breaker over that first cup of tea or pint of stout. We like to opine on its fineness or finiteness.
Now close your eyes and briefly scan your whole body front and back, top to bottom and notice what place looks the fuzziest or blurriest. Keep this quick and simple. The whole scan should take about 30 seconds. No more. You’re only looking for ONE blurry place; if you find three, you’re going to always pick the most-blurry. Finally, this is done with eyes closed. It’s an imagination and intuition exercise only.
A lot of people are victims of this nasty little fungus, but they don’t know it. All they know is that there are tiny brown specks on the house that look like paint. So far they have blamed everything from spiders to aliens.
There are kids running around, laughing and playing tag, seamlessly dodging the other pedestrians walking. People from an older tradition slowly trudge up the hill wearing their old traditions. Vendors sell small bites at every couple turns. All the while, you are caught in this peaceful atmospheric calm created by the sapphire walls of Chefchaouen. The walk further upward brings you to the old town square. This area was my least favorite because it was the only bit of the town that had a touristic feel. However, this can easily be escaped with a climb up to the Mosque. The panorama up here is quality, with a dome of mountains to the back of you and the wonderful GSI vs. GIA of Chefchaouen beneath your feet.
Spring is here and nature lovers will want to get out and about noting the new flora. Migratory birds will be visiting Ireland en route to their nesting sites. Easter time finds many of the places to visit in Ireland opening to public after their winter holiday.
But a picture of perfection – whether it’s real or not – is no competition whatsoever for a living, breathing, fragrant woman sitting next to a man at a restaurant. Or pressed slightly against him in the elevator. Perfection can go hang; you are up close and personal.
As you shop for rings or any gold jewelry, be more conscious of those pieces that are gold plated, rather than identifying the karats of gold. This means that the outer surface is covered in gold. It is common to make different jewelry pieces, and dip them in gold to make them more affordable to the many. Gold plated means that the piece is constructed of an alloyed metal, and then coated with gold. This gives the appearance of the piece being a real gold however the gold coating is extremely thin. Be a wise shopper.
