Clicking My Heals…Dreaming of the Emerald Isle – #Trust 30


 The Prompt…

I’m not certain where in this challenge this prompt came in…maybe #1, I don’t know, I entered on the 6th day…

Like I said though, I am attempting to go back and document the ones that I missed.  🙂

If we live truly, we shall see truly. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Not everyone wants to travel the world, but most people can identify at least one place in the world they’d like to visit before they die. Where is that place for you, and what will you do to make sure you get there?

It’s true, not everyone wants to travel the world, and I am one of those. I don’t dream of white sanded beaches with tranquil and transparent ocean views. I don’t dream of hiking up mountains and camping at Yosemite Park! Not even the Grand Canyon strikes my fancy.

Odd, maybe, but I am a true and conditioned home body.

However, there is one place, maybe two, I would like to visit, if I could click my ruby shoes together I would LOVE to experience…

Click your heals 3 times...

The Emerald Isle – Ireland – Donegal County, to be specific. Donegal is where my family is from, according to the research of my maiden name O’Donnell.

Kylemore Abbey - Donegal, Republic of Ireland

O'Donnell Coat of Arms

Isn’t she a beautiful land…green and miles and miles of serene beauty. I’d like to see her and possibly meet distant relatives from my Celtic Roots. With a bit of research I found this: Donegal Studies which told me that I am a descendant of Celtic royalty of sorts.

Not a girl of romance any more than I am a girl of travel…I found the information romantic and thrilling. Descending from Gaelic Royalty with Midieval Castles and wars and such just speaks to my primal love of all things midieval and celtic.

King Arthur and the Round Table tales, I dream of stories like these about my ancestors!

I truly don’t know how or when, but I intend to find my way to Ireland the home of my forefathers and foremothers.

Interesting fact…Celtic women were treated equally to Celtic men. They were warriors and mothers. I come from hardy stock!

Blessings Loves ♥

Author: Hopeannfaith

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
