Spring Poem From Marian


As the forest path Lay out before me A crossroad in my day Asking myself Do I go left, right? Or forward Or return to my beginnings I stand in reflection And ask myself some questions The smell of forest pine Devine I close my eyes I can hear a child crying When the world Throws a curve ball And it shocks You through and through Take a second Take a deep breath And hold Now breathe out Look around Ground weeping Continues rain Sky as grey As a sand quarry Chill in the air Spring is suppose To have arrived Windswept cold Icy ground Hard to walk around Winter chill Wind into ones bones Storm clouds gather Sky dark with A slight touch of grey Gray like my mood Birds singing As if the weather should Be in a better mood Sky coloured blue Blue like the ocean In a far off land In a sunny place Feet roasting By a blazing fire One is warm Because in ones mind One can dream I am standing Thinking Spring has come But spring has yet to arrive

Ulster American Folk Park

....As you stroll the park you take a path that brings you to the “Old World”.  The first exhibit is a working man’s cottage (pictured left).  There are docents in each building to explain what life was like for the residents and their families.  Each building becomes a bit grander as you walk on.  There is an original school building and two churches.

 The path eventually brings you to a building housing, what I considered the highlight of the tour for me, a full-size replica of an immigrant sailing ship, the Brig Union, from the 1840s. ....

ome to the Curtin Clan! 
 
Many of us enjoyed sitting around the table listening to stories from our grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents and cousins.  Many of those voices are now silent, yet our yearning to connect with the generations before us is still strong.  The Curtin Clan offers the opportunity to connect with stories that help us better understand our history.  

An important benefit of joining the Clan is connecting with Margaret Curtain, our genealogist.  She has collected a wealth of information from buying up thousands of documents for Curtin families worldwide since 1977. She is a founding member of the Clan, and was presented the insignia appointing her as a Companion of the Order of Clans of Ireland (CIOM) by the Irish vice counsel at the Chicago Gathering in June 2011. 

 

Another benefit is connecting with our DNA project coordinator, Dan Curtin. We have a number of Curtins who have participated and this will help expand your genealogy research.  We have quarterly newsletters and will have our next gathering in Williamsburg, Virginia in Spring 2019

 (Health to the men and may the women live forever!)
