Kilkenny People

Bless your graces Celine

I was delighted to meet with Sean Keane, deputy editor of the Kilkenny People a few weeks ago and even more delighted when he wrote a piece about my book for the paper.

Buy online!

Thank you to everyone who attended the launch and gave me such wonderful feedback on my first book.

I’m delighted to announce that I have set up an online store where you can purchase Graces and Blessings from Ireland and also some limited edition A4 prints. The link to the store is http://gracesandblessings.tictail.com/

You can also click on my “Where to buy” tab to get a list of (hopefully expanding) outlets where the book is available.

 

Celines Graces and Blessings, June 2013 2013-06-21 043

It’s May, it’s May!

May is the start of it;
Hedges are dressing up in whitethorn doilies
and swooping house martins vacuum the air.
In a busy week God, I forget the seeds
until they catch my eye.

All five cucumbers, raise their heads to meet the light
while scores of basil leaves like green pin-heads on earthy cushions
bring promises of pesto and pungent juicy tomato salads.
My taste buds are tingling.
Thanking you God, in anticipation.

Amen

I love chocolate

I give thanks for chocolate.
Dark or milky but never white
Filled with nuts,
Wrapped around honeycomb,
shaped like an egg,
poured over ice-cream,
dribbled over puddings,
filled with liqueur,
icing on cakes,
topping on biscuits,
encased in colourful papers
and elaborate boxes.
Dear God, I hope you can see that I am most grateful for chocolate.
Amen
