Green on the Horizon

Green is beginning to bud everywhere, even in my mind. I am planning a trip to Ireland and the landscapes fill my daydreams. We are going at the beginning of May. We will spend a few days in Dublin doing fabulous things (including a Bob Dylan concert). Then we are renting a car, visiting the remote sites of Ireland’s countryside. The airfare’s been bought but not all destinations have been decided yet. If you have been to Ireland, please leave me a comment of advice, tips, places I must see and things I must do (or things I must not do). It is hard to choose where to go in a country of such diverse landscapes and interests. I will do my best!

"Soon," they whispered, "you will be cloaked in green. The sun will dance across your closed eyelids. Once more, your eyes will open. The light will be shocking, beautiful. Cloaked in green."
