Céad Míle Fáilte*

An Irish blessing in honor of 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,
The rain fall soft upon your fields, and
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

And a photo I took at Kylemore Abbey in Co. Galway. I used to have a poster with a similar photo in my guest bedroom. (It was wonderful food for the imagination.)
Kylemore Abbey, Connemara, Co. Galway

*In Irish, this greeting means "a hundred thousand welcomes". (Welcome back to my regular updates!)
