Happy St. Patty’s Day Folks! 💚🍀🍻 House smells amazing with the aroma of corned beef and cabbage,,,potatoes and carrots and Irish soda bread! Looking forward to our wonderful meal and then we’ll be watching one of my favorite movies.. The Quiet Man. I just love the two of them together!
What better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day then to watch John Ford’s, “The Quiet Man” (1952). It’s been 64 St. Patrick’s Days (including today) since the premiere of The Quiet Man, but it’s been a lot longer since John Ford first wanted to make the film back in 1933 after reading Maurice Walsh’s, “The Quiet Man”, a short story first published in the Saturday Evening Post.

And the ending credits song….You Got Me by Colbie Caillat….love this song!!
Lightening The Load
I was feeling a heaviness,
I was being dragged down.
I could feel myself pulling away,
My Spirit starting to drown.
I felt the need to get away,
Coming on so very strong.
Fresh air and quiet solitude,
My prescription for all that’s wrong.
Walking my lonely stretch of beach
Tears and angry words were shed.
Releasing all that toxicity
Helped to clear my head.
With each and every step I took,
Unshackled I became.
Freedom is always possible,
If I don’t refrain.
Sometime it’s a necessity,
To break out and let it all go.
By doing so I free myself,
And lighten up my load.
