For my cousin Liza Conlon, in Metuchen, New Jersey.

_________________________________________________________ A tune for the exiled Irish who left their country (for France and Spain) after the fall of Limerick in 1691. Written down finally by the Irish harper Patrick Quinn in 1803. Early Celtic believers referred to the Holy Spirit as the Wild Goose, a name rightly describing the unfettered, free, and wild nature of God [John 3:8]. We submit our decisions to God and listen for His affirmation or counter-intuitive direction.

My mother just sent me this. It's very encouraging. Please take a few minutes to watch......
___________________________________________________________ When I was a child growing up on a farm in Chester County (Southeast Pennsylvania, USA), we had our milk and other dairy products delivered. The milk came in bottles from the "Wawa Dairy" which was close by (it's since grown into the national chain of convenience stores!). Printed in red on each bottle was "Wawa, to the American Indian means wild goose, to you it means the finest in milk". The indians in the area were Lenape. We used to find arrowheads by the shoe-boxful in the fields of my dad's farm.
Arranged by Glen Weiser. I made some changes. I cannot say enough about Glen's arrangements. He's done great things for the preservation of traditional Celtic music. I highly recommend his books and CD's ...........http://www.celticguitarmusic.com/bio.htm

I continue my experiment with recording. I am brand new to using microphones and it might be a while before I get it figured out. Here I have one over my right shoulder and one to the left, aiming down the fingerboard. They both go into a Zoom H4N recorder (until I get a preamp).
