Ireland fields

Little did I know during our trip to Ireland in May 2017 the imagery of the landscapes and villages would play into my un-started novel. I also drew upon the history of Ireland to shape a primary character who becomes involved with Eliza. A Stop Along the Way

At one point, he offers an Irish prayer as a toast. I think it’s lovely and different enough from the well-known, traditional Irish blessing, “May the Road Rise Up to Greet You” to stand on its own:

May God give you for every storm, a rainbow.

For every tear, a smile.

For every care, a promise, and a blessing in each trial.

For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share.

For every sigh, a sweet song, and an answer for each prayer.
