my mom / myself at the Cliffs of Moher with a bad camera, 1994
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
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)
Wishing all of you a Happy St. Patrick's Day...
