words chanced upon
I found a bookmark in Barbarossa: The Russian-German Conflict - a book I'd borrowed from the animator's shelf.
Under a celtic cross were the words:

I arise today
through the strength
of heaven, light of sun
radiance of moon
splendour of fire
speed of lightning
swiftness of wind
depth of sea
stability of earth
firmness of rock.
(St Patrick)

I'm not religious, but the words resonated with me. Life is quite a trial at the moment and, despite the fact that I have so many things to be grateful for, I have a tendency to wallow in bleak despair. Good then, to be reminded of the fundamentals occasionally.
