My Work Is Loving the World

Dear Mary,

I'm so sorry to hear you're unwell. Like so many others, your work has a precious influence in my life. When I came upon your work I was a suited (and not so happy) professional living in London. 'Absorbing' those texts provided the fuel required on the journey to where I am today--a full-time (v. happy) painter based in Cork City, Ireland.

When things have been tough, I always find a spur in your words that not only topped up the tank but drove me forward. The most amazing gift has been how you helped me to see, feel &
marvel in the glory & abundance of nature.

I am overwhelmed daily by the abundance of my native place and feel even given 10 lifetimes, I could never document the glory of the natural world that surrounds me. Because of you, "My work is loving the world ... which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished."

Thank you for everything. Please get well soon.

Sending love, light & best wishes,

Cora Murphy

Ps: You also helped me to see the merits of 'waking early'..... which is no bad thing!
