The Internet is an amazing thing.
While doing a Google search yesterday for I-can’t-remember-what, I stumbled across an image of this Edward Hopper painting.
Appropriately enough, it’s called “Sunday.”
The moment I saw it, I was transported back to Ireland. I spent two glorious weeks there back in 1997. One of the first locals I spoke with was an older gentleman, sitting outside his flat in Limerick, in a pose reminiscent of Hopper’s rendering.
He let me take his picture, too.
His name was Jack O’Shea, and he had a large, toothless grin and sunny disposition. That’s his dog Pavarotti seated next to him. The two didn’t seem to have a care in the world.
That’s what lazy Sundays are all about.
