Endings and Beginnings

Well Campers, the Dublin leg of The Big Adventure is nearly complete... and I have WAY TOO MUCH TO DO this afternoon!  EEP!

I wanted to write something poignant, but I've realized that a.) I'm a little too hungover, and b.) I really just don't have time.  So, that being said, Ireland has been lovely and while I'm ready to head off on the next phase of my adventure, I'm definitely going to miss this place.

I bought a Clauddagh ring from a lovely man on Grafton Street this morning, and he told me that if you're wearing one when you leave Ireland, it means you'll come back.

You can bet this baby's not leaving my finger until somewhere over the Atlantic.

Make sure you wear it the right way round.

The crown should be away from you if you're available and towards you if you're not.

I never remove mine.

Actually, it's the other way around... up-side-down (ie- crown toward you) means you are available, because your heart is open and facing out to the world. Right-side-up (crown away from you) means you are taken, so your heart is facing inwards, close to you. That's what I've always been told, and that's what the jeweler who sold it to me said...
