Breaking the Silence

(The Old Library at Trinity College--one of my favorite experiences so far!)

Greetings from the Emerald Isle! I am alive and well and rambling about over here across the pond. Just wanted to stick my head in at the isle so you all don't think I've been stolen by a leprechaun. It's been a whirlwind week and a half, first a week in Dublin at Trinity College, now several days in Galway. Days have been chock full of classes, lectures, workshops, readings, sightseeing. I think I may have forgotten how to sleep in the process. But it's been such a delightful time (apart from the heatwave Ireland's experiencing--ugh) and I wanted to post just a few pictures.

I also just received today the cover art for the novella collection that my novella is apart of. I was so excited when I received it that I actually did a happy dance in a coffee shop this afternoon. So I'm posting a photo of that as well for you to see. (Though I do apologize for the pictures being uncentered and somewhat unformatted--technology while traveling can get a bit squirrelly.)

Hope you enjoy the view! Monday it's off to Scotland!

My friend Joe introduced me to oysters--maiden oyster voyage at the Temple Bar wasn't bad.

We saw a play in Dublin called "Shush"--very funny!

Crazy excited about the novella collection cover art!!
