I will arise and go now to Innisfree…
-WB Yeats The Lake Isle of Innisfree
I”m drifting off to sleep in the late minutes of March 17. I’m dreaming of Kilkenny, Sligo, Dublin and Galway.
What’s happened for me on St. Patrick’s Day? Actually, nothing that involved crowds and singing and rowdy behavior.
We cooked an Irish Beef Stew, listened to the Clancy Brothers, the Dubliners, and Enya and of course Van Morrison’s Raglan Road.
Then, we put on The Quiet Man.
We’re homebound. I feel so sorry for the Irish and all the others who are going through the same thing.
Such times, indeed.
