A Gaelic Blessing


May the road rise to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face.

And the rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His Hand.

I don't know why I chose today to post this.. It's pretty familiar, I've known it for a long time.. But, It's my wish for all my readers, yes, both of them, today...


  1. Half of your readers want to check in and thank you for the kind wishes. I appreciate the sentiment, Bill.

    I'd heard that blessing before, and have always liked it. It comes from people who know the earth and the sun, and is powerfully emotive in its simplicity.

  2. Thanks Michael..

    I'm a bit of a dichotomy.. an angel on one shoulder and demon on the other.. I don't know myself who will win the day until it's over..

    But, I speak from the heart. I tend to say what i mean, and mean what I say.. for right or wrong.

    Maybe that's all of us...
