1.A Tourist Commentson the Land of his Forefathers
Take Dublin for instance:What is it anyway?You walk across O'Connell Bridgelittle kids begging - gives the place atmosphere;ya look around through a flea bitten crowdand wonder why they stay here.Their cousins in Milwaukee write,saying COME ON OVER - WE'LL FIX YA UP.But no, it's safer going to ceilis and mass,please Goding and making themselves believe thatGrafton Street is elegant & an ice cream conein summer is high adventure.As for me, I got some great shots of the placeand as soon as I get back to the U.S. of A.I'll put them right where they belong:first in the projector shining on our living room walland then in a bright yellow kodak boxnext to all the others in my sock drawerNo offence meant.Julie O'Callaghan
