A 365 to 40 Holiday, Day 5: Oichne Huin

I love this carol. So many wonderful memories of the church I attended for so much of my life, and hearing our wonderful pastor, Father Bill, play this on his violin after communion. Never a dry eye. One year, he sang it as he entered the church, and, since he read and spoke seven different languages, chose a different language for each verse.

I heard this version in the middle 90s, and, loving all things Irish as I do, fell in love with it as well. Hearing so much Gaelic this summer only confirmed that for me. So, a carol to sum up the best part of my past, and my present. A beautiful thing.

    "So I walk like I'm on a mission, 'cuz that's the way I groove. I've got more and more to do, I've got less and less to prove. It took me too long to realize that I don't take good pictures 'cuz I have the kind of beauty that moves..." Ani D.
