I walked outside the tug today
as we were traveling from Corpus Christi to Houston, TX
and was reminded immediately
of a land far far away from here.
I never would have thought a view
of the Texas coast
would remind me exactly of the view I saw
while taking in the spender of those famous cliffs in Ireland called
"The Cliffs of Moher."
I immediately back peddled
and grabbed my camera
because I wanted to share with you what I saw
as I stood in County Clare Ireland a few years ago with my wife and
overlooking this majestic natural wonder.
Tears almost came to my eyes,
because I had just traveled 3,280 miles
for this opportunity to see Ireland's most famous tourist attraction,
I never did see the Cliffs.
We were standing in the thickest fog bank
I ever saw.
I'm not complaining
it just sounds like it.
I'd go back in a minute.
