It was All Good...

Last night, Dar and I enjoyed Ireland's best:

Sinead O'Connor and Damien Dempsey.

The latter, a strapping 32 year old with grand voice, belted out the song I've liked for years, one which Sinead sang backup voice for on her Collaborations disc,

It's All Good.

His newest CD, To Hell or Barbados, he signed for me, and we talked of Ireland, briefly. His love of music and of Ireland come through clearly on this new work.

Sinead O'Connor gave us a broad sample of her songs, rousing the crowd to a frenzy at times. We managed to get quite close, noting how, with her short hair, she looked like Elijah Wood-- Frodo Baggins fresh from Hobbit Dale. Amazing that such a petite and fragile lady could pierce the night with a voice powerful enough to make the full moon shimmer.

Today she performs at the VooDoo festival in City Park
New Orleans. Dar and Starr and I will ring in the new year 2008 there.

'Tis time now to meet Cecile and visit the new Hindu Temple.

Love Yourself Today...
