"My mind sees that I am nothing, my heart sees that I am everything, between these two poles my life unfolds."

When Irish Eyes Are Smiling...

Top 'O the Mornin' to Ya
Happy St. Paddy's Day!

This is the most ridiculous video, but it is also very sweet and funny. 

For some unknown reason this song always makes me want to cry...
Perhaps in a past life my one true love sailed away as I watched from atop a rocky crag; the bitter wind whipping through my castle window, tossing silken locks about my tear-stained face?

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.

May the rain fall softly upon your fields. And the sun shine warm upon your face.

Top of the mornin' to ya.....(and the rest of the day to 'me self!)

May there always be work for you to do.

May your purse always hold a coin or two.

May the sun always shine on your windowpane.

May the hand of a friend always be near you.

May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.


  1. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you also.

    Cute rendition of the old classic Danny Boy and the poem is true Irish prose.

  2. I thought it was delightful - but now I've had it stuck in my head for two days...!
