have you been to ireland?
…you’ll find a place steeped in history and folklore….
…a quiet place to have a cuppa….
…in the company of butterflies.
…of angels. eloquence will be your reward….
…once you kiss the blarney stone.
you’ll feel the searing pain of the past and you’ll cry…
…but, you’ll have so many opportunities to laugh out loud.
most of the time, you’ll wonder where you are….
if you visit the pubs you’ll hear music and laughter, and if you mix with the locals themselves….
you’ll make friends for a lifetime.
someone said to me, once, “if you ever, ever get the opportunity to go to ireland, don’t even think about it. just. GO!” i didn’t understand before, but now i do. it’s a home from home… a quiet home, and a very old home. a slow-down-and-breath-the-clean-air home. it is, in fact, a home very much like being at home, lacking only the proud and glorious stars and stripes, and…
…home, sweet home
