Your Hands

The other day I noticed a lot of things about your hands.

Here are just a few:



They have seen hard work--whether pushing computer keys or holding a hammer.

There is such a masculine quality about them. Strong when they want to be-------Soft when they need to be.

Comforting----that pat on the back saying things will be o k -- or rubbing circles on my shoulders in an Ï understand" sort of way.



The magic in your fingers that brings music to life--that touches me… Continue

Thought for the day!!!!!

Handle everything like a dog,
If you can't chew it or eat it,
just pee on it and walk away.

If anyone noticed I haven't been around lately...

Not that I think you're all dying to read my blog and destroyed when I don't write....!
But anyway...life is in the way of my computer time. I worked the polls for the election last Tuesday (long hours, little work), I've got a couple of storytelling gigs coming up and I'm behind in my Irish studies (got three more pages of translation to do before tomorrow night). And of course we're going into "the holidays", heaven help us all.

Took a while but now the new song is here.

Its called " Highland winds ".

The base consists of a flute and a guitar ,where alternately arpeggiating violin- and wind- and brasssections represent the different strength as well as the different directions of wind.

Happy (Celtic) New Year!

Halloween is oíche shamhna, Samhain night, New Year's Eve. In that time between the end of the last day of the old year and the first light of the new ghosts may walk, the púca rides the countryside and anything may be abroad!

The púca, or pooka, is said to blight all fruits not harvested by tomorrow morning, making them unedible (you probably don't want to know how he does this, as it involves bodily fluids). But then, all the harvest should be in by now--turf… Continue

California Fires

I have lived here since 1982 and these fires have been some of the worst ones to date. It's so tragic to see people losing everything they have in minutes. I have a friend that is in a fire area and I can't get in touch with him to see if his house is safe.

We get so busy with life and wrapped up in many things, but it's in times like this were we push aside those things to focus on what's important. Pray for the the families that have lost there homes and the firefighters that are still… Continue

You

You come to me in my dream---and I can feel your warmth.

I feel your arms around me -- and I breath in your scent.

I tell myself it's just a dream-- it is so calming and in slow motion.

But I can actually feel you next to me-- and hear you breathe-

Your breath tickles my neck!! It has to be real---- I want it to be real --

I have missed you for so long-----still loving you after all this time.

Even after all the hurt.------ I want to open my eyes and see you-- but--… Continue

An introductory language lesson

Irish Gaelic is usually just called Irish; usually Gaelic means Scots Gaelic, a cousin language that is close, but not identical. The spelling was standardized in the 20th century, but the pronunciation wasn't, so there will be regional differences--there are at least three major dialects in Ireland. More on that another time.

But now, enough Irish for the chat room. No, there aren't many Irish speakers in the LiveIreland chat room, but some of us do like to use a touch of the… Continue

Birthday fun and one tired old lady!

Yesterday was my birthday and what better way to spend it then to go for a hike?! I donned a nice pair of jeans instead of the loin cloth (sorry dabh and chip) and headed out to Cooper's Rock for a bit of exercise before I stuffed my face with cookie cake and pot pie. I don't think I would want to be anywhere else in the world then in WV in the autumn. The colors are absolutely amazing! Sadly I had to lower the image quality so I could put the pictures on the site but you guys get the jest.… Continue
