The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

The idea of this journey started way back, during another life time when I was 10 years old. I don’t know what sparked it. It could have been a subject in grade five, a book I read,  but  it’s  more likely I heard the gentle whispering in my soul, and I listened. As I listened I could feel a gentle tug, pulling me back to a land I had never been to, an ancestral place that was never spoken about or acknowledged, but a place I could feel in my bones was calling me.

I decided at a very young age that one day I was going to visit this mystic land that called. This was my dream. As I grew up, life became complex and complicated, and it was hard for me to hear the whisper, but I could always feel the pull.

Life was, and continued to be hard, and survival was in the forefront, so my dream took a back, back, way back seat. But, I am happy to say that because it was placed so far back, it was also kept safe.

Fast forward 40 years, and life was safer and calmer  and I started to once again hear that whisper, and feel that pull. The universe placed people in my path who had either lived or been to Ireland. As we spoke I was more intrigued and the whispering and pulling increased with strength. I was loaned a book, – I will speak of that in my next post- I read it and thought “I can do that, I can visit Ireland, and see what has been calling me all these years.

This blog, like any good adventure , has a vague road map. Like my writing it will have twists, turns, and go down side alleys I never knew existed. Come along and join me on this journey, this Epic Irish Odyssey, discover along with me whats down those side roads, over the bridges and along the paths as I walk this inner and outer journey. Lets Discover together the treasures within our Self, and within Ireland.

Welcome aboard!

  2. Suzy,

    I love your plan! I am from Sligo and it is one of the most beautiful places in the world.

    I think we may be around the same age. When I was ten I used to stand by the shore of the lake or on the white sandy beaches at the Atlantic ocean and I could feel that pull you describe. I used to think I was feeling the soul of the place. Even though I am an atheist I still feel it very strongly. I am sure you can feel it in many beautiful unspoilt places but I have never felt it anywhere else.

    I have lived in the UK for half my life and I miss Sligo and feel it pulling me back and happily I am going there this summer for a week.

    I will follow your journey and hope your experience is everything you dreamed it would be.
