July 12th

Happy marching, all you Orange men and women! Let's keep moving closer and closer to the day when this festival and St Patrick's Day are celebrated by everyone just for fun. I know that isn't an easy concept for all those who have suffered - on both sides - but it's not impossible. It has been happening in Canada for years and there's no reason why it can't happen in the homeland, also. And why is this comment in the Book Blog? Because those of you who have read The Book of Dreams (which I am currently revising) know that a central scene occurred on July 12th, 1850, as recorded in Dana's great-great-grandfather's journal.
