One week from today
gonna take an airplane . . . I'm a going (to my second) home.
From Greensboro to Boston to Dublin for a few days. Tour the Guinness factory. Walk around St. Stephen's Green and think of Joyce. Then a train to Portadown to see my family. Maybe look up my biological Dad in Lurgan (not expecting much haven't seen him since I was six). A day at Portrush (a beach). Maybe some burial mounds.
Then an airplane to England (Stony Stratford) to visit more relatives and maybe check out some bookstores at Cambridge, take in a Liverpool football match, lots of pubs and steak and kidney pies.
Here's a website with some good modern day pics of my hometown:
