The image is of a small stone cottage in County Mayo, Ireland, photographed by me on a cold, sunny day in May, 2013. I was intrigued by the pots of geraniums in the window, placed there by someone, even though the home was abandoned and the roof was gone. It seemed to me to be symbolic of the will of the Irish people to survive and thrive, in spite of all the hardships and tragedies brought to their doorsteps throughout the centuries.
