When I make school visits, children often want to know about Scotland, the country where I grew up, and also about Ireland, where I spent so many childhood summers.

I like to tell them that one of the great gifts of my Celtic background is that I grew up knowing that what cannot be seen is often times more real, more important than that which can be seen with the eyes.

The Celtic people have a tremendous reverence for nature, for mystery, for the sacredness that surrounds us, if only we can see with the eyes of LOVE.
