Dressed up in Green

As you can see I've got my blog all dressed up for St. Patrick's Day. Now, while I don't have a single drop of Irish blood in me, I can still appreciate the beauty of Ireland. I love Celtic music, as evidenced by the music on my blog this month. I love movies set in Ireland and one of my all time favorite heroines is herself, Scarlett O'Hara. I didn't know for a long time there really is a real Tara in Ireland. Granted it's just a hill these days, but at one time was the high seat of the Kings of Ireland, and is, today, where you'll find the Stone of Destiny, where those kings were crowned.

Ireland is one of the places I'd like to visit at some time in my life. Who knows what the future might bring....visiting Dublin, Ulster, maybe the homes of James Joyce, Jonathan Swift, Oscar Wilde, who knows...might even catch a glimpse of that handsome Pierce Brosnan. I just hope he doesn't try to sing!

Oh I would love to visit Ireland.
It is on my wish list of places to visit before I kick the bucket...kind of like a "Bucket List".
