about

Years ago I spent 6 months on the Isle of Man. In the middle of the Irish sea, between England and Ireland, it's a true microcosm of the British Isles.

The Manx language has died off the culture a little, not like Wales or Ireland where it is still very much used. So they are undertaking the task of reviving the language.

One of the the common phrases still used by the locals is Traa dy Liooar. It means 'time enough'. Essentially it means to chill out, take it easy, dont' rush.

A good reminder for us all. Especially me. Enjoy with slow breaths.

lyrics

Lyrics:

There’s no present like the time
And time is all we have to give
Why the hurry? Slow it on down,
And we might find a new way to live

Traa dy Lioor, Traa dy Lioor,
There is time, there is time enough
Traa dy Lioor, Traa dy Lioor
There is time enough

Take the time to let the path unravel
Feel the earth and follow your feet
Cos we all know when we take the path less travelled
Life can be so very sweet

Like a pebble in a pond, expanding infinitely
The moments we touch shape our way
And if we could cross time to meet ourselves
What is it that we’d say?
What is it that we’d say?
