Connemara – webs, fog and permanent drizzle

One morning, a couple of weeks ago, we hit the bog roads of Connemara to walk the dogs when we discovered that overnight the countryside must have been overtaken by spiders. We were shocked by the amount of cobwebs that literally covered the gorse bushes everywhere in sight. I am not sure what exactly happened or where all those spiders came from but they spun those webs with the speed of light. Believe me or not but every single gorse bush was wrapped in webs.

A Government Office

A Government Office BY NDREK GJINI The carpet here is tired and worn as my neighbor’s old winter coat. The dead legs of the officer’s desk like four exclamation marks (!!!!) In the middle of them his two legs as two capital ( L) letters. Above them his two furtive hands move over and under that desk, constantly. Over the desk; the mask is never lifted. https://ndrekgjini.com/2015/07/11/ndrek-gjini-the-death-of-night/
