…Life goes as quickly as if it had wings. I have no idea how many times I’ve told that story over the last 20 years. With each telling of that moment in time, it comes from further in the past, the images blurring more and more around the edges. Now I find myself wondering; Do I really remember that moment or have I just told the story so many times that I simply think I remember it? Like reflecting on a book read long ago, the...

A Moment in Dublin

Once upon a time, long ago, a young woman found herself, quite by chance, running in the rain through the streets of Dublin, when suddenly it dawned on her, “I am having the happiest moment of my entire life.” At the enormity of this thought, she stopped and scanned the panorama of where she stood, taking in every nuance, every light, every sound, every smell, absorbing the moment with every cell in her body.

Paddy’s Day Dublin

As an American of Irish Descent, it had always been a dream of mine to go to Ireland. Last year, that dream was realized, and them some.
