If this is your first visit to my blog, WELCOME! If you are returning, it’s great to see you again!
Many thanks to the host of this event: Carrie Ann Ryan.
~Blog Post~I've always been a sucker for magic and fairies and possibilities (I'm sure those of you who have read my modern-day fairy tale, Diamonds and Toads see what I mean), so St. Paddy's day, with its traditions of 4-leaf clovers and leprechauns is right up my alley.
In fact, when I heard the tale, as a kid, that pots of gold could be found at the end of rainbows, I spent quite a few 'Dora the Explorer' hours endeavoring to FIND said 'end of the rainbow' (even though the naysayers chimed in to say with much authority that it was actually IMPOSSIBLE to find the end of a rainbow). Still I tried. I had a lot of fun on my expeditions, too. Because I spent those hours thinking of the outcome (the pot of gold--and, if I was VERY lucky, the meeting of a real-life leprechaun, to boot), but also, I usually managed to find some interesting bugs and rocks and animal nests and other natural wonders on my quest.
So, for all of you who are like me, still a kid at heart, and still believing it's possible to find the end of a rainbow: Happy hunting and Ádh mór ort!
