day 126 – Happy St. Patrick’s Day

To all my Irish friends!

Back in 2000, my friend L and I walked everyday and we shared the love of reading.  She lent me Angela’s Ashes and ‘Tis by Frank McCourt and I lent her Are You Somebody? and My Dream of You (a novel) by Nuala O’Faolain.  Both are Irish memoirists and incredible writers.  I love Nuala for her prose and feminine view.  If you get a chance, read her.   I pulled both her books back off the shelf to re-read.  She has since published other books (one or two posthumously) and a sequel memoir, but I think I should begin again, here.  

There’s a richness in Irish literature as lavish as the emerald countryside!
