"Nice article, Jill. Of course, the only thing that beats flying into Dublin is flying into Shannon. And I have to agree with you it is wonderful to live in a "world where I can race the sun and win". That is something I never take for…"

"Great article. The veil is indeed 'thin' in Ireland just like your article states. Many of the ancient structures were built by Partholon and his followers. They were a race of people who came, it is believed, from Greece and inhabited…"

Flying Into Dublin

From the air, in the dark 5:00 morning, Dublin is nothing more than a sheet of lights floating on water, glowing like a Christmas tree. I press my face to the glass, feeling the cold seep onto my forehead. The first time I saw Dublin, the sun was rising over the Irish Sea. The water was glossy and sugary pink, a confection for the…See More

"Jill - As a boy I visited Ireland several times, hitch-hiking all over. I met the people and I spent a great deal of time walking. Seeing Ireland like that is different from driving a car.  I came across several "thin places" but…"

The Mythology of Thin Places

Posted on November 7, 2015 at 9:30am 8 Comments

'Wild For Ireland': Sharing a Passion for a Place

Posted on September 27, 2015 at 8:30pm 6 Comments

It's not easy to follow your passion. It's a terrifying thing to take that step, to put yourself out there, to make yourself vulnerable. But it's liberating too.

For my whole life, my first love has been Ireland- her history, her culture. I've traveled there and filled my bookshelves with books that take me back to a place I…

Posted on August 24, 2014 at 1:00pm 6 Comments

I wrote this poem after months of studying Yeats' work and life for my undergrad thesis. One night, I found a BBC recording of him reading "The Lake Isle of Innisfree." I finally got to hear the voice I had been reading for so long and the moment took my breath away. This poem resulted…
