I’m trying something new! Since Celtic Wisdom is out of print, I thought I’d try recording an audio version. Uh, not as simple as it sounds! There are Irish words in there, and the book was published in UK English, so some things are not the way I would usually say them. For instance, sometimes their verb-subject agreement is different.
It’s not perfect, but for those of you who like listening to podcasts, you might like it. (It’s possible I’m the only who will notice these quirks.)
A Free Introduction
So I’m posting the mp3 here of the first chapter. If you like it, let me know: would you be willing to pay say, 99cents, for additional chapters? It takes me hours to record one part, so I need to know if this something readers would like before I press on.
It’s St. Brigid’s Day! I hope this day will find you reflecting on the generosity of this Irish saint known to us from legends and stories. Did you know Brigid is one of three patron saints of Ireland?

There is much that is known and much that is speculated about St. Brigid. I’ve blogged about some of it. The murals below depict some of the stories. (From St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Armagh.)
