All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go

When a Poem Comes to Mind 

“Like one who, on a lonely road, 

Doth walk in fear and dread, 
And, having once turned round, walks on, 
And turns no more his head; 
Because he knows a frightful fiend 
Doth close behind him tread. – 

Coleridge’s “Ancient Mariner.”

St. Patrick’s Day

God be with the days when we could parade and congregate, go to mass and dance and sing on our saint’s day.

Here are a few old reminders of how March 17 used to be

John Kelliher took this photo of me on a day I used to love, snapping the action on the streets on St. Patrick’s Day.

Young and old used to throng the pavements in days of yore.
