Chasing the Waves
11 pm O'Looneys's pub, 1980's, talking to two brothers in their 70's who were home for Christmas. It was their first first visit in over 40 years. At 3am, woken woken by a wave splashing the window pane, I looked out. The two brothers were playing 'chase the wave' on the slipway, laughing, joined by a long tailed dog and the sounds of a loose Guinness keg carried over the rocks by the tide. It was as though they were twelve years old again.
