Mud Mud
 and more Mud

This section of the Wicklow Way (13 and 13b ) can be done in one walk,
returning on the same route.
 The walk was carried out after heavy rain and the upper path was "a river of mud".

Down from Curranvanish and Farness
 to Muskeagh

The two walks together I would describe as strenuous with a steady climb of 120 metres and and a descent of the same value. Unfortunately I have lost the high definition of Google Earth and therefore the values are approximate.

Are you following me? Who me?

Everytime I would look round the animal was behind
 me and it's head would look away as in the photo.
I have had dogs and cats  follow me, but this was a first.
The cow had gotten out from a field
and followed me in both directionson on this rural lane.

The Death of the King.
The End?

In mockery the Roman Governor asked the assembled Jewish mob
"Do you want me to release ‘the king of the Jews”? They shouted back, "No, not him! Give us Barabbas!" Now Barabbas had taken part in a rebellion. John 18:39 and 40
Although not understood at the time, Jesus had foretold his death and the fact that it would enact the New Covenant, at the last meal he had together with his followers .
Jesus took a cup of wine and said “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you”. Luke 22: 20

Speaking about his death Jesus has also said “Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world (Satan) will be driven out”John 12:31. That is to say that this decisive event will determine who shall rule this World.
The four Gospels record the bitter disappointment, grief and fear of the followers of Jesus when he was arrested by the religious leaders, tried for blasphemy (He claimed he was the Son of God - see Matthew 26:62 to 64), handed over to the Roman authority and executed as a common criminal.
The brave among them determine that his body must receive a fitting burial for a prophet of God. And so a small number of woman prepare burial spices and ointments and await the coming morning light so that they might visit his tomb and anoint his body.
