It’s St. Patrick’s Day – Did You Find Your Pot of Gold?

This is the season in Hawaii when a rain cloud will mysteriously appear, sometimes with sunshine at the same time.  We call the sprinkles “blessings,” and look for the rainbow…

Our leprechauns are called menehunes, little men with magical powers, and like everywhere else, we have a St. Patrick’s Day parade.

An Irish novel to go with the beer?    Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín

Colm Tóibín’s Brooklyn reads like an Irish Our Town with a slow inevitable pace that follows Eilis Lacey, a young Irish immigrant.

No James Joyce for me, but anything by Oscar Wilde will do. You can find some of his work online:  Oscar Wilde Literature Page
