Happy St. Patrick's Day!
(Thanks for being concerned for me yesterday. I made it. Now, to do it again tonight! Ouch!)
On this day in 461 AD., Saint Patrick died at Saul, Downpatrick, Ireland.
Much of what is known about Patrick's legendary life comes from the Confessio, a book he wrote during his last years.
It hit me that most of what readers will know of us will come from our novels.
Will those flashes of lightning tell the true story of who you are?
