If you're wondering

the picture above (header 3/17 , a cliffs picture) is the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland.

Some people we talked to when I was in Ireland thought our family, the Mahars, were possibly from that area, they said the name is the same. It reminds me of one of my favorite movies too, Waking Ned Devine. It's one of those movies where I want to just climb into it and live for a while.

I can't wait to go back to Ireland again some day. Loved it. Especially rural Ireland. Dublin was a bit over stimulating for me, especially in July. I want to visit there too again, but maybe try it on the off-season.

Oooooh, I'm so excited. We'll visit there on our way to Dooega on Achill Island, site of one set of my Irish ancestors. Still waiting for info on the other set from my sister, who's the keeper of such knowledge.

Hooray for Ireland!

I feel like that about movies sometimes. I'm glad for DVDs. I've just bought another copy of Brother Sun, Sister Moon for just such fantasy feelings.

Years ago at the end of movies I used to ask Keith, "Then what?" and "Do you think they kept the house?" or "Do you think he ever found her again?" and Keith (sensibly, wisely, irritatingly) would say, "You don't get to know that. There was no more story."


They built PEOPLE--they showed me LIVES. I want to know them and find out more.

But that was a long time ago and I'm older now. Now I wonder those things but I don't ask other people!
