I have been sitting at my desk looking at the above photo above for several days now.
The scene is peaceful and tranquil, depicting the slow moving waters of the River Barrow which flows through Glenbarrow in the Slieve Blooms, whose low mountains are shared by two counties: Laois and Offaly.
That young boy in blue, I was told, is left handed and yet here he is pointing with the index finger of his right hand. I cannot help but wonder whether he might have inherited a trait of one of his great-grandfathers in being ambidextrous.
Time will tell I suppose.
So is this another version of the 'moving finger writes and having written moves on' or is he pointing at some small creature hidden from us? I don't know.
But you my learned viewers might like to share with me what you consider he may be doing as he looks into the peaceful waters ?
