Words My Windows

Currently Reading: Welcome Joy: Death in Puritan New England by Gordon Geddes

Six months ago.....

We were driving through Ireland for the first time.


Walking its fields.


Listening to the sea. 


Finding where I belong.


Every day, my heart longs to return. I can't wait for the day when we do.

In the meantime, I escape back to Ireland through my books. I just finished the last Sevenwaters book, which was mesmerizing and exciting and a wonderful homecoming for me. And I have some good "Ireland books" planned for the coming months: Tales of the Elders of Ireland, Early Irish Myths and Sagas, Corrag, I Am of Irlaunde, Over Nine Waves: A Book of Irish Legends, 1916: A Novel of the Irish Rebellion, and The Red-Haired Girl from the Bog.

These books will be my plane tickets... their words my windows. I will return.


  1. I feel this way about Georgia. x

    1. I hope someday I feel this way about where I live. Until then....

  2. I love Ireland too. It's a lovely country! xx
