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.
