wonderful world

There's not a little irony in the title of this post.

I have no idea what to blog about this evening.

Less than 3 miles from me buildings are on fire and shops are being raided by looters. It's happening in many places across the city and I'm feeling sad and rather helpless.

I've had worried messages from my brother in Kent and my daughter in Oxfordshire. Glad that I was able to assure them we're all fine here.

Louis Armstrong's (What a) Wonderful World came suddenly to mind. The song was one of my Mum's favourites and I've always thought it a hopeful song.

It wasn't hard to find some photos to go with it. These were taken in Galway on the west coast of Ireland in June.
