Flashback Friday – Ireland

9 03 2012



This photo is actually a page from the journal I kept while travelling in Ireland, March 2004. There is no way to describe the effect of the trip – of Ireland – on me, other than to say it changed my worldview. In browsing through my journal, I came upon two quotes (neither of them mine), which really speak to my feelings about that trip:

“In Ireland, the inevitable never happens and the unexpected constantly occurs” – Sir John Pentland Mahaffy

“An rud is annamh is iontach” or “That which is wonderful is seldom” — Irish proverb
