Cinnia awoke to a cold and dreary Saturday morning. The sky was gray and there was a fine, but unrelenting rain. Weather reports indicated that would be the order of the day. It made you want to curl up under blankets with a good book. With thoughts of Celtic music and myth still running through her mind, Cinnia decided to follow through on the decision to head to the library. Perusing the shelves, she pulled several volumes on Celtic mythology and folklore and found a quiet, solitary corner to settle into. Before long she found herself immersed in the world of bards and tales of great warriors, kings, and feuding tribes. She got so lost in her research, time escaped her, and it wasn’t until her stomach began to demand food that she decided to call it a day. She chose a couple of books to check out and headed home.
It would be amazing to travel to some of the locations referenced in these stories. Perhaps the ancient sites still have some of that old magic left in them, enough to reignite a creative spark. At the very least, it would allow me to indulge that wanderlust that is growing stronger and stronger.
As she prepared dinner, Cinnia created a Celtic playlist on Pandora. Her mind wandered and danced along with the soothing melodies. With the meal in the oven, she popped open her laptop and scanned through her notes. She was surprised to see the number of places she had recorded, a whole itinerary so to speak. She checked her e-mail and found a travel deal for a two-week tour of Irish castles.
That’s a sign. I’m booking this before I can talk myself out of it.
Once upon a time...
