A Cocoon With A View

ISBN: 9781788492225
€9.00

Back in the last weeks of February, which now feels like a hundred years ago, we here in Innishannon were busy planning what was termed 'The Big Rake Off' of the dead grass on the long sloping bank beside the road coming into the village. Happily unaware of forthcoming events, we were totally focused on creating our wild flower bank: to get something like this going you need a 'metheal', a word which prior to the corona virus was unknown to anyone under 40.



Then everything changed: exploring the themes of community, family and personal wellbeing, Alice Taylor examines a world changed utterly by the arrival of a once-in-a-century infectious disease.



Heart-warming, reflective yet always practical, Alice can be a great guide to getting these in a world unlike the one we lived in only a few short months ago.
