I know

it's Theme Thursday, but my Kitchen post is only half-done (I'll finish it; it's more about cookbooks than kitchens at this point). I'm just back from seeing Eileen Ivers's wonderful Beyond the Bog Road multimedia event. I learned quite a bit, too, about the Famine. Interesting that the Cherokees, just before their enforced march known as the Trail of Tears, were able to send $170.00 to the Irish in their time of anguish and need, but the English . . .

Here is a little bit of a promo for the event:

I love all the rainbows in the vid. Wow, humans are such amazing creatures, here, in Ireland and everywhere.

Thank you for this.

ofedness! (word veri)

O fed ness, I wish
to take back dinner
to eat a midnight snack
of ice cream and fried turnips
to create a dinner table
where people gather and enjoy...

and so forth
