In October 2003, my son and I attended Mother Teresa's Beatification Mass in Rome. During our stay, we visited Sister Clementina, a Daughter of St. Paul. The convent where sister resided was across town from St. Peters, near the St. Paul Basilica. We were blessed to enjoy the Rome subway system. Sister was the aunt of my co-worker Teresa. Sister died two months after this photo. She entered the convent at 16 years of age.

I shot this image crossing the Connor Pass on our way to Dingle. It was one scary drive. First of all, the steering wheel was on the wrong side. Four feet to the left was a 300 foot drop. And there was so much fog, you could maybe see 20 feet in front of you. But it was all worth it - as Dingle is a lovely place to visit. Find a nice warm pub, a bowl of mushroom soup, some brown bread - and a nice glass of Irish whiskey - preferably Middleton (if you have deep pockets!)
