At this time of year our thoughts intuitively turn toward continued health and well-being for all. The 2017 series features Wishes for Friendship. As the Roman philosopher Cicero once so succinctly stated, "life is nothingwithout friendship." The sentiment still rings true, as represented by Wishes for Friendship. A tribute to benevolence and fellowship, Kinsale's kaleidoscopic flakes represent friendship within the deep cobalt blue of a winter's night in Kinsale, one of Ireland's most beautiful harbour towns.
