This morning I left my Northern Ireland home. It's been swell and I got to learn about sheep finally! Here is the parting gift that I made for my hosts. They had been asking me to draw up a farm plan as reference for future helpers. So I did.
Today I begin a pilgrimage to Croagh Patrick Mountain which is where Saint Patrick was supposed to have fasted 40 days. I will be walking more or less with my feet all the way from here (the northeast coast) to there (midwest coast) for mass atop the mountain on the 26th. Should be a wild ride. The name of this game is liveing outside my comfort zone for a month, so no steadfast planning. God's planning this trip for me :).
