    To my Mother, with Love.. on a recent visit to Trinity College, The Book of Kells and The Long Room in Ireland. The highlight of my trip..
    When I was younger, watching my Mother read a book was very interesting. At times she would say random stuff like, "Did you know that in the Mayan ball game, the loser's punishment would at times be death?" Yup that was my mom and still is, reads random quotes from books or simply will state a fact out loud. To this day history books are sure her favorite.
    There I was taking a step to the side as I watched other people enter the long room. Have you ever had so many emotions running through your body? I realized I was having a surreal kind of experience. Then it hit me, I was really there! Finally, after taking a few steps forward I decided to close my eyes for a minute or so. I swear I thought my heart was going to burst out of my chest. The visitors voices seemed to pause for a moment as I opened my eyes. The row of busts was the first thing I noticed, then my eyes made their way to the barrel ceiling. The way the sun's rays showcased the many shades of dark wood throughout, was so picture perfect. Just like a postcard but I was really there!
    Look at all those books! Such a lucky girl, I thought. The Long Room and it's beauty. I just couldn't help it anymore and tears rolled down my cheeks. Tears of joy.  Because that is exactly what traveling sometimes does to people. To our hearts, our souls and to our minds. I  just couldn't wait to share the beauty of these places with my Mother via email to which she replied, "I am so happy that you got to experience it all with your very own eyes, darling."
