That Old Irish Tune

I was listening to some Irish folk music, an impulse buy while I was at Shoppers. Songs like Will Ye Go Lassie Go and Black Velvet Band make me thing of dancing. The instruments they use, their voices. I just picture being in a pub watching them except we’re years back. People are enjoying a pint and some or dancing and others are probably playing at dice and cards and talking loudly.

I saw myself in that time, so many years ago. My hair was much longer and flowing about my shoulders and I wore a loose blouse and maybe a long skirt that twirled about me feet when I moved. I was in this pub, with low lighting and a fire burning somewhere. A group was in a corner stage area and they were playing through all these songs and the man who took the lead for vocals would come out and dance with me.

I saw myself moving with him and dancing. Sometimes slow, sometimes faster. He would hold me close and hum the song. Other times he’d sing out loud while he spun me about. We were laughing and smiling and sweating from the exertion but it was so much fun.

I want to see myself in that time. I want to be there. I want to be that happy and I want to be that loved. To be with someone so happy that it just rubs off on you. To have someone confident enough to sing to you and dance with you. It all seems to simple and carefree and easy.

I just saw a movie two nights ago that I think would resonate with you. Set on an island in Ireland called A shine of rainbows with Connie Nielsen and Aidan Quinn - although I couldn't recognize them at all. The acting was that good. The cinematography was spectacular .... think you'd have itched to be there to take photos - particularly with the view of the white beaches and surf from very high emerald green cliffs:

Ah! One of the kids in the movie is Jack Sleeson! He played Joffrey in Game of Thrones! Well this is going to be interesting because I'm going to mistrust that kid for the entire movie!! lol!

I bet that if go to Ireland in some more remote area, you will find that pub still today. Have a pint for me!

I never used to like drinking any beer! Even fancy craft beers and stuff. I actually still don't like those other beers like Blue or Coors (eww). We have a place nearby that has a very impressive menu and really great descriptions. They had a nice sour ale there and it was very good but they didn't have it the few times I've gone since Sad I kind myself looking to go out for a good beer now and then over those fruity drinks, and I still can't really drink wine.

Could be that beer would be much different there. Strange how a specific environment could get one to drink something and enjoy it as it just feels right to do.
