books, Irish history, Scottish history, Cornish and Welsh history...I like to pretend that the rest of my family doesn't come from plain old oppressive England. Micheal Collins, NOT De Valera or Ian Paisley. Celtic music and art (I paint).

My Signature:Many times man lives and dies
Between his two eternities,
That of race and that of soul
And ancient Ireland knew it all.
" To a Scot, the past clings like sand to wet feet,
and is carried about as a burden.
The many ghosts are always a part of them, inescapable."
Hope, fear, false-joy, and trouble,
Are these four winds which daily toss this bubble,
His breath’s a vapour, and his life’s a span;
Tis glorious misery to be born a man.
~ from a Cornish gravestone
"Now I perceive the devil understands Welsh.”
"God defend me from that Welsh fairy,
Lest he transform me to a piece of cheese!”
William Shakespeare quotes
