Happy St. Patrick’s Day

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
may the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

traditional Gaelic blessing

  1. Great picture. Reminds me of the last time I visited my relatives in the old Country….ahhh to have a fresh brewed pint of ale from ye old inn again top off with a wee jig o’ jameson…sigh.

  2. I’m glad you like it. I have a few hundred sitting here on my computer which I should upload to Flickr one of these days and share with the world. As one of my fellow travellers said to me recently, it was a journey which will only improve in our memories over time until it takes on mythic qualities.
