Eamon Kelly

The Tea man told by Irishman Eamon Kelly. He was a charming storyteller who died in 2001. Sadly most of the great storytellers have disappeared because of technology. Now movies have replaced sitting around the fire and listening to the tales of the past. I hope you take time to listen and imagine what it was like in the old days.

A Psalm of Life

I have a book that has been passed down in my family from my stepfather’s grandmother dated 1906. It was given to me when I was 16 and I still have it. This poem by Longfellow has been my guiding light throughout my life. I thought I would share it. A Psalm of Life by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
