Erin go bragh

17 March 2011

We're loving Ireland from afar, on this the holiest of all holy Irish days. There will be prayers and emails, skypes and pictures, but here is where we are and here is where we'll celebrate. There's a new batch of people in our little community, who - much to our surprise and delight - are anxious to experience this day with us and see the country and the people through our eyes. That seems so strange to me (me, us, of all people, who scratched and cried and pulled ourselves through our first year there by the skin of our teeth until we felt something close to home and a divine contentment in our souls, and until the people there became part of us and, hopefully, we them). So strange, but a profound blessing, to now be their ambassadors here.

this time last year...
