No, I will inherit none of it but I love to hang out here
It the Burren's midst is a tiny establishment, The Burren Perfumery. A one lane gravel road leads to it and just when you think the small signage was wrong several stone buildings appear. Walking in you are flooded with the smells of the all wonderful creations made from the flowers and fauna of the Burren wrapped up neatly in soaps, creams and of course perfumes.
So these memories make me sad as I am not there but look ! I am here. And here right now in Central Illinois it is sunny and warm and the animals are enjoying the pastures. Best of all, I have the house to myself (utter joy) so I will look forward to visiting the Burren again and be thankful for what I have now...just enough 12 year Jamison in the bottle to make one more hot toddy this eve. after all my work is done.
There is more than one way to honor the Burren you know.
