Third time's the charm...I hope...

I had to correct some errors in the submission material for David Martin. Apparently, when you make one change in the format of an unusual layout for a Word Document, it forgets everything and reverts back to its presets. Which I didn't think to check before I sent in a new PDF. So tonight was spent going through the whole piece and reworking it so it would fit into a 6x9 format. Amazing. I'm so techno-stupid, it seems I can't even do inputting right.

So now it's all re-uploaded and waiting for the next final word. God, I hope it turns out right, this time.

I'm staying in Dublin in January. If I really, really feel the need to visit Belfast, it's only a couple hours up the coast...but I have a lot to consider doing in Dublin. Tara's closed for the winter so no day trips, for sure. I considered Shannon and traveling up to see The Cliffs of Moher, again, but that was too complicated. Now I'm calm and ready for the journey.

I took this photo my first trip to Ireland -- 12 years ago. It's Dublin looking up the Liffey. The country was just changing to the Euro, and everything was wild and wacky. I'd already been in the country 8 days so was on their timeline. Went to see a mediocre play at the Abbey Theatre. Took a day trip to Blarney Castle. This is where I fell in love with Guinness.

This time, I'm just kicking back.

I'm so envious of your world travels... one day.

It is nice to be doing the majority of it on someone else's dollar.
