misdirected motivation
Sunday, March 21, 2004
  P.S. I finally won! After many long hours of trekking out to Meadowlands and back, I won my first Roll up the Rim last night! Even if it was 'just a cookie' I'm still pretty stoked.  
  This is just a quick blog to let those of you who think that I haven't blogged in a while (Felix and Mikey mostly), that I still do blog.
I haven't had a whole lot of time lately to keep up with this, because as most of you know, my sister Leah came out to Redeemer for the week. It was a really great time of us just hanging out at the dorm, taking goofy pictures, driving all around Ancaster, and making green cake for St. Patrick's Day. My conclusion of the week: if any of you have siblings, spend time with them. They'll love you no matter what, and you don't have to do a whole lot to please them. I don't mean this totally to be cheap and sarcastic, I just love the way that my sister and I have kept up our good relationship even though we live at opposite ends of the country. Here's to you Tookie, I had a great time!

  Irish Blessing Seeing how it's St. Patrick's day next wednesday (March 17), and my name is Erin (the poetic version of Ireland), I thought that I would post an Irish blog. If none of you have heard of the amazing 9-piece violon group Barrage, and their version of this Irish poem, i suggest that you try and find it.....beautiful

Irish Blessing

MAY THE ROAD RISE TO MEET YOU,
MAY THE WIND BE ALWAYS AT YOUR BACK
MAY THE SUN SHINE UPON YOUR FACE
THE RAINS FALL SOFT UPON YOUR FIELDS
AND, UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN,
MAY GOD HOLD YOU IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND

Barrage adds a few more verses to the song that I thought I'd include:
May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face now,
May the rains fall soft upon your fields

And until we meet again
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand
May God hold you in the palm of his hand

May our children and their descendants
Be the ones to find a lasting peace
May their hopes and dreams become united
May the past be left for those who hate

And until we meet again
And until we meet again
May love and trust find a way to make a stand
May love and trust find a way to make a stand

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
May the rains fall soft upon your fields

May this world and all its wonders
Be a home to all humanity
May the people find a common purpose
May we help one another to survive

And until we meet again
And until we meet again
May Mother Earth pour her heart into our land
May Mother Earth pour her heart into our land

  africa Under enigmatic skies and a temperamental sun
She rests wisely on the globe,
The mystical mother
Drowning the desert with kisses
From the river
Most of us
Have never seen

Anger sets her jaw
Forthright and proud
Into the shadows of beauty
As the brow of a nation
Shades her eyes.

She is the mystery and glory
Of Africa

-Andrea Stone 
a form of procrastination
