"May the blessing of the rain be on you— the soft sweet rain. May it fall upon your spirit so that all the little flowers may spring up, and shed their sweetness on the air. May the blessing of the great rains be on you, may they beat upon your spirit and wash it fair and clean, and leave there many a shining pool where the blue of heaven shines, and sometimes a star." —Irish Blessing Photo: Poulnabrone portal tomb in the Burren, on a very foggy day, County Clare, Ireland. 2012.
