lucky.

Standard

clover

met a friendly irishman 

in line

at the first airport

with an accent

who was

going my way

we had

 many hours

of

travel adventure

ahead of us

through

flight delays

canceled flights

missed connections

route changes

airline changes

seat changes

itinerary changes

re-ticketing

running to gates

taking shuttles

 sitting on the tarmack

trying to find lost luggage

sharing

food

and

beers

and

stories

and

laughs

and

names of

places to visit

each

making our way

to the magic land of 

ireland

for our own reasons

and 

what a lucky beginning 

to this wonderful adventure.

  1. I’m so happy for you, Beth! You would attract nice people anywhere you went, I have a feeling. I’ve been absent from the blogging world and have been looking on your blog to see where in Ireland you’re going, but have probably not read the right posts if you’ve mentioned it. Hope you share more of your experiences!

    We went about 10 years ago and really enjoyed the culture. I think I liked Doolin the best. And maybe Kilkenny. I found the driving terrifying, though. I’d also like to hear of your experiences flying through the main U.S. international airports (you might have flown out of Chicago being where you are?).

    HAPPY TRAILS TO YOU!!

  2. I think he’s the lucky one, Beth. It reminds me of the day I worked in a hotel as concierge, the same day the unbeaten New England Patriots were to face the New York Giants. Undecided which way to bet, he took one look at my name tag – and knew instantly to take a chance on Eli Manning and the Giants. He could have at least bought me a bag of animal crackers with his winnings!

  3. You spread joy wherever you go, Beth. You create your own “luck” while others feel lucky to share time with you.
    On a different subject, your Mud Hens won 3:2! I was happy that my grandsons team won their league of 10 + 11 year olds! 🙂
