Of an Irish Springtime and a spiritual journey
"My first memories are of Aughlisnafin,
Of drumlins green and yellow whin,
Of running water and furrows deep,
Of candleight and pillowed sleep..."
Life is filled with touches. The sweetness of a long kiss backed by fidelity. The power of a story well told. The searing wound of sarcasm. the bewildering influence of a cold shoulder. The sound of the cataracts of death around the bend. The clutch of a little baby's hand on an adult's small finger. the shadows cast by moonlight. The greeting of the rising sun. The sound of rain driving against a bedroom window. The inspiration of a great orchestra. We are all touched by something. In this unique autobiography-in-verse the author traces the influences that have touched and shaped his life. It all began in an Irish Springtime....
