10-24-07 - Galway and Connemara
Greetings all,

Another short post today, as I continue to have limited access to the net. But, it is very beautiful here. A sunny day in Galway. The picture is from earlier in the trip when we were comming up the soouth side of Galway Bay. Other pictures here include The dingle bay fishing fleet at sunset,

some standing stones that are about 6000 years old!

And the cliffs of Moher. Anybody ever see film, The Princess Bride? These sort of look like the Cliffs of Insanity.

I mentioned yesterday that I had a new song, and then never talked about it. The song is called On Eireann's Shore. I played it for the group last night. It was a hit. Here are the Lyrics. I will try to get an mp3 of the song up somewhere in the next few weeks. A love song for Lynn.

On Eireann's Shore (copyright 2007- Joe Jencks)

I have come here, as a stranger
From across the sea i roam
I have come here as a prodigal child
Who is ready to come home
From the hills of Connemara
To McGillicuddy's Reeks
Oh this verdent land she calls to me
Ever softly does she speak

And I will give to her the song I sing
As so many times before
But the one who hold my truest heart
She lies far from Eireann's Shore

Oh their dancing down in Doolin
As the band begin to play
But my thoughts they start a wandering
To a place so far away
To a woman who is waiting
And I own my soul is torn
Between this country I would call my home
And the one where I was born

And I will give to her the song I sing
As so many times before
But the one who hold my truest heart
She lies far from Eireann's Shore

Now I turn toward the Atlantic
At the setting of the sun
And I would have her here beside me now
That our lives might be as one
All our days would know such beauty
And our sorrow be no more
And our love would find fulfillment here
As we stand on Eireann's shore

Then I will give to her the song I sing
As so many times before
And with hearts no longer torn apart
We will stand on Eireann's shore

And with hearts no longer torn apart
We will stand on Eireann's shore

Hand in hand on Eireann's shore

Thanks for all the love and good wishes.

Love
