|The place I call home.|
But nowhere will you find a more fiercely proud Irish woman than me. In my mind anyway. Something happens when you move far away from the place you call home. You become protective, idealised and full of poetic notions of where you come from. Irish culture, traditions, values, history and language are all treasured and I love talking and sharing them with others. With that, I want to share a moment that was and still is a very proud moment of mine. My participation in the St. Patrick's Day parade 2012, Tokyo Japan. Almost a year ago I know, but the Irish Network Japan has just released video footage of the event.
Skip to 00:27 and 27:00 to see 'us' take part.
This year I plan to take part with my dancers again and I cannot wait. The lead up to and the event itself will be detailed on this blog. But for now, wherever you are, be proud of where you come from and be sure to share your pride with others.
