Spring Has Sprung?

“April is the cruelest month, breeding
lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
memory and desire, stirring
dull roots with spring rain.”
~ T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land

“Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the sun and winter in the shade.”
~ Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Being Irish


I think being a woman is like being Irish… Everyone says you’re important and nice, but you take second place all the time.
~ Iris Murdoch

Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him through temporary periods of joy. ~ W.B. Yeats

I’m Irish!…When I feel well I feel better than anyone, when I am in pain I yell at the top of my lungs, and when I am dead I shall be deader than anybody.
~ Morgan Llywelyn

“If the leaves danced then tell me they danced. If you slow danced in the kitchen then tell me the song. Tell me the tiny, delicate details that make this story your own.”
