“An Irish Imagination”


When we went to Ireland a few years back we were told by a small pudgy white bearded man with a top hat that there are no snakes in Ireland. The legend is that in the fifth century A.D. St. Patrick exterminated Ireland’s snakes by driving them into the sea. The truth is, snakes never existed to begin with in Ireland. Knowing this truth is like finding out that Santa Claus doesn’t really exist. It takes away from the fun that the legend congers up. The imagination seems to make many things happen and appear that were never there before.

Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

If St. Patrick could drive all the snakes out of Ireland into sea, maybe he could drive all the snakes out of Congress as well. We could walk with trust through the green grasses of our country once again without fear of being bitten by all its discourse.

I have a bit of the Irish imagination in my blood, how about you? Maybe if we put all the good things we can imagination into the pot of gold today…we could create something magical.

I've come to know myself as a unique individual expression of God. I love that there is only one me in all the world. I'm still learning, growing and experiencing all the wonders that this life has to teach me. I live, move, and breath in this shell of a body God has given me, and together we travel. He see's, hears, taste, smells and touches all that I experience through the individual personality that I am. I believe He exist in each one of us for the same purpose. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.
