Just What I Kneeded

What happens after a life-altering knee injury?

May the wind be always at your back

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

This may be one of the most well-known Irish blessings, and I love it. It’s beautiful.

In honor of the day, here are some pics of my socks. I wish this was a week-long celebration so that I could wear all my St. Patrick’s Day socks; some of them still have the tags.

Rainbow socks.

A gift from a knowing friend.

Magically delicious socks.

Another gift. People know me.

Shamrock socks.

I haven’t even had a chance to wear these.

Have you ever seen the movie, Darby O’Gill and the Little People? It’s really a shining moment in Sean Connery’s career. You should take a gander. You can find the whole thing on YouTube. (And now I have successfully discussed both my obsessions in one post, YouTube and socks.)

I have a fern I named Frankenstein. I like leprechauns, practicing kung fu moves on my dining room furniture, and pretending that one day I will move to Fiji. I dislike my neighbors' kids, anything that is chartreuse, and Ben Roethlisberger.
