Stepping away from the problem can provide some much needed clarity. For more information on what other steps to take, I've pre-scheduled an article related to this topic on my Writing in the Modern Age blog for August 25, 2017. http://marielavender.blogspot.com/

No one ever bothered to mention it until then. From what I've always known of the Irish, they're rather proud as a people, and I can't understand why there was never any Irish influence on my family - neither the mythology of the culture nor a Catholic exposure of any kind. It came up casually in conversation once, and never again. I suppose it bothers me that the Irish culture wasn't more prevalent in my upbringing, and I would like to learn about it, perhaps even figure out why there was so much secrecy involved to begin with. I've always loved Ireland as a country, and I would be thrilled to visit it sometime. At least, it makes more sense why I have felt drawn to Celtic music since I was a child. Claiming I now have Irish roots gives me a better perception of myself and my family, in any case. I would love to include it in one of my books at some point.(less)

“We all have an inner voice, our personal whisper from the universe. All we have to do is listen -- feel and sense it with an open heart. Sometimes it whispers of intuition or precognition. Other times, it whispers an awareness, a remembrance from another plane. Dare to listen. Dare to hear with your heart.”
