What’s the luck of the Emerald isle all about? Apparently you may gain the gift of eloquence if you kiss Blarney Castle…hmmmmmmmmm…all the world’s a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed? Luck of the Irish…seems to be a bit of irony in that popular statement as the Irish have been spectacularly unlucky…oK want the pot of gold delivered leprechaun~style? Just keep your eyes on him…don’t look away, for if you do, he’s gone. I always wonder if it is environmentally safe to dye large bodies of water green? Does your tongue turn green when you drink green beer? Did you know St. Patrick was born in England…his real name was Maewyn Succat and he was a sheep herding slave? I forget what exactly are we celebrating, besides our PRIDE and joy of Dublin? The only thing I know about luck is this: it will change. Is luck simply believing you are lucky? Is luck when opportunity presents itself and you’re ready for it? Love how Ovid puts it, “Luck affects everything…let your hook always be cast, in the stream where you least expect it, there will be a fish.” Ok here’s what we do with this lucky word luck…try your luck at least once a day, because you could be going around lucky all day and not even know it. PIF.
TONIGHT celebrate with me at the CASBAH, 306 King St. West, Hamilton. Support a bursary for a youth from Living Rock to attend Mohawk College.
