Happy Saint Patrick’s Day (Patron of Ireland, country that has given us so many Fairy myths and legends). I like Celtic music and play myself Irish whistle and harp, and other traditional instruments that are usually featured in my recordings. Though my reinterpretations and original songs are not traditional, this influence is undeniable.
Though the tradition was born as a Christian celebration (being the death of the Patron Saint of Ireland) for me it’s a celebration of green.
So today is all about green… I love wearing green and usually wear it the whole year to the point some of my friends and neighbours make jokes about it as if I were some kind of pixie. I love green so much that I classify my clothing in my wardrobe by “shades of green”… mossy green, forest green… It´s a green that shifts through the seasons. A green that becomes vibrant in Spring and muted in Winter.
So Kermit the Frog once said It’s not easy being green. Today might be the easiest day to be, because it is told Leprechauns will pinch on you if you do not wear it. And also as Kermit said… green is the colour I want to be. For me it represents my “Mother Nature” which I like to worship. I hike regularly (with my partner @hedac) and find it an enless source of inspiration.
Branches don’t stay bare forever
We have endured Winter, and yes, for some it’s been harsh, and branches have faced winds and even some of them have broken all naked and bare
These days I’m rejoicing to see the first budding leaves unfolding… if you care to see those little buds sprouting… they seem small but they’re a promise of life (and luck maybe)
and we must now remember it won’t be long until this happen again
And this is a message I leave to all of you for interpretation 🙂

Meanwhile outside, the first leaves are starting to unfold… Pay attention… You don’t want to miss this magical moment of “transformation” . Light returns and all comes to life. Days are longer… make the most of them!
I love the moment when the wintry bare forest starts to turn green. Now it’s time to grow.
By the way, I’ve never found a “four leaf clover” myself… wish me a little bit of “LUCK” to find one (and for all the things that matter to me). Best wishes back!
The leaves of Shamrocks and common 3 leaf clovers are said to stand for faith, hope, love and the less common variants with four, luck. The “luck of the Irish” might be related to the fact that in that country is where these rare variants of clovers are more easily found.
