I got this email today from my sister Val who lives in Crosshaven Cork. She’s referring to the recent election of the Fine Gael Party. Our father was a lifelong supporter, he’s singing up there in heaven :)
The world believes we’re dead and buried but our future…
“Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”—
— Harper Lee (To Kill a Mockingbird)
It may be a sin but I’ve wanted to kill a mockingbird. Last Spring I had one that would sing at the top of it’s lungs all night long, right above my bedroom window.
