MAY THE NARRATIVE BE WITH YOU
Lawrence Howard, "The Peddler of Ballaghadereen"
Sometimes dreams are worth listening to, and sometimes they're not. In this traditional Irish tale, a poor peddler follows a dream halfway across Ireland. Is it a leap of faith, or an act of folly? Lawrence Howard is not Irish; he's the other "ish." But he married an Irish lass and he loves an Irish folk tale just as much as anyone. When he's not mispronouncing "Ballaghadereen," he likes to read about heroic adventures in the Antarctic and around the world.
