Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Gerry Adams, Sinn Fein party of Eire, March 12, 2009

For the great Gaels of Ireland
Are the race that God made mad.
For all their wars are merry
And all their songs are sad
- G.K. Chesterton
