Back last fall, after my father died, the Honoured Spouse and I thought we’d plan a trip—months down the road, at that point—as R&R, once the dust settled.
The dust shows no signs of settling, so we’re going anyway: to Dublin, leaving day after tomorrow. I’ve lost count of how many people have wanted to know whether I intend to tweet as we go, post pictures, etc., etc., andI found myself wondering if the best solution might not be to just post links to a blog, rather than be a timeline-hog bore. I haven't particularly wanted to blog, heretofore; so much 'blogging' seems to just be re-posting of other people's content, I didn't want to add to the noise.
Nevertheless, here we are.
As yet, we’ve no firm plans, beyond meeting up with some online friends 3D—exciting!—and seeing the Book of Kells.
