Artist's Description

FEATURED IN PENNSYLVANIA PHOTOGRAPHERS ON VACATION 4/2/12
I am posting this image in tribute to a dear friend who passed away recently. He was a local business owner and philanthropist with family ties to Ireland. He journeyed there many times, played in an Irish band every St.Patrick’s day in Gettysburg, and was a wonderful, fun loving human being! I know “Seamus” must now be standing on the shores of Ireland. I captured this scene about eleven years ago when we traveled to Ireland for my son’s wedding to an Irish miss. Afterwards, we toured Ireland, and I have to say it was the most beautiful place I have seen in this lifetime, especially the beautiful Cliffs of Moher.

A Parable of Immortality
I am standing upon the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the moving breeze
and starts for the blue ocean.

She is an object of beauty and strength,
and I stand watch until at last she hangs
like a speck of white cloud
just where the sea and sky come down to mingle with each other.
Then someone at my side says,
“There she goes!”

Gone where?

Gone from my sight………that is all.

She is just as large in mast and hull and spar
as she was when she left my side
and just as able to bear the load of living freight
to the place of destination.

Her dimished size is in me, not in her.

And just at the moment
when someone at my side says,
“There she goes!”
There are other eyes watching her coming…..
and the voices ready to take up the shout……
“There she comes!” ~ Henry Van Dyke
