On St. Patrick’s day we usually post a limerick. Mostly they are humorous, but not this year; as we link the situation in Eastern Europe to the story of the saint chasing all the snakes from Ireland. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Patrick
(In Ireland, lass and lad are used regardless of age)
- Boxty is a traditional Irish potato pancake.
Wishing you a St. Patrick’s day weekend filled with limericks and laughter.

I was honoured to be asked to write a theme poem, then Larry said, “But not a Limerick”. (Hal and Sidra Stone are the developers of Voice Dialogue, the psychology of selves VoiceDialogue.org)
