“I’ve celebrated this day in the past, but it’s different in Ireland,” says American expat Elizabeth Lamb (@ebdeco) of Saint Patrick’s Day. Shamrocks aside, Elizabeth says it’s a time for friends and family. “The tradition here is to go to Mass in the morning, and after go watch the parade,” she says, which is followed by meeting friends at the pub and listening to traditional Irish music.
After visiting Ireland as a teenager, Elizabeth returned to research her family history and wound up falling so in love with the country that four years ago, she moved into an old house on a sheep farm in Donegal, overlooking the North Atlantic. “The Irish landscapes, especially the rugged beauty of Donegal, are some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen,” says Elizabeth. “I love the ever-changing light, the unspoiled raw beauty and the old stone walls, castles and cottages steeped in history.” Plus, she adds, “Where else can you find a crock of gold at the end of the rainbow?” 🍀

Oysters were had with family members at @jacqueline.pdx on Friday night... if only Andy Zissou had been on land to appreciate this cocktail.

Pleased to have purchased my own little flag at the @cooleygallery pop-up shop on Friday eve; it is a replica of the exquisite handmade piece on show by @heterogeneoushomosexual .

My witch hazel was short lived, but this one on campus was in fine form the other morning.

Happy birthday, @margaretm313! The good-luck kitty sends you joy!

Happy birthday, @goodsilence! Here is an artfully imperfect rose for your consideration.

A bright spot: the witch hazel that I bought with @macolgrove a few years ago has finally bloomed!

I'm so pleased and honored that my excellent friend @therarehold will be wearing a banner with my name and sassy face at the #womensmarch in DC as part of the #marchingwithme project by @sufferingthesilence. Stronger together, even vicariously! #ReedAlumnae #Classof97 #RiotGrrrls #nocandyforyou

Now that was an inauguration. Thank you, Barack and Michelle. #obamafarewell

Sun shines upon my garden chair that you've seen in summer and those famous neighborhood sequoias.

Cute-dog dispatch from the C.O. (my parents have more than two feet of snow in Tumalo)!
