Dear Dachalover: fascinated by your various posts within this thread - some of your comments really 'chimed' with me as an ex-patriate Englishman (Midlander) residing in far west SW wales for over 40 years & counting..[on another 40, if I'm spared?]. I do have an uncertain % of ex-Co Roscommon Irish blood in me somewhere...lower left leg, I think?? I've been a communicator/ interpreter all my professional life & carry on much the same in active retirement (3 years so far). Outdoors is where I've based these interpretations of the natural world: seashore, countryside, farmland, mountain & moor throughout the British Isles.
I short, I'd miss the (comparative) freedom of movement & expression which we can sometimes take for granted here in Britain. The easier-going Irish way of life I love: (sampled in wet west Kerry late 1970's as a geomorphology/ landform & geology student). **I could go on & on, but perhaps you'd like to pm me if you wish a more private dialogue??...Slaunte! Pob Hwyl!! Good luck!!
