This year for St Patrick's day I am going to travel. I will wake up with the sunrise and walk through rolling hills, imagining I am in Tipperary. While enjoying a cup of Irish breakfast tea, I will try a new recipe for Spotted Dog, envisioning the coziness of a thatched roof cottage in Donegal. I will visit a farmers market to get the freshest ingredients necessary for an Irish feast in Galway. I will watch a parade, pretending I am in Dublin and visit a pub that could be in Belfast. I will come home to a table laden with Irish stew, Steak & Kidney pudding, soda bread and Guinness. Such a grand time will wind down with a proper Irish Coffee. Every toast to be had will be for those in Japan. May they do what they have done before, overcome, prosper and celebrate like the Irish.
