I looked at this picture I took in Ireland back in 1986, and remembered why it was I went there in the first place. Ireland is so peaceful. Any time I need to grab hold of the quiet, I look at this picture.

Ireland however is not all tranquil and peaceful… it has a wild side.

Ireland is the country you take family to when you are convinced that Irish is the best part of your ancestry. It’s the place you bring your sons and daughters to when you want them to understand why it is you always get a little crazy on St. Patrick’s Day.

I know… because the best part of me is Irish!
