Here is a typical street in Downtown Dublin, Ireland.  Note the lack of neon signs, billboards, and skyscrapers.  While on my walk today, I contemplated why I felt so at peace in Ireland.  We don’t realize here in America how many times daily we are bombarded with images of capitalism gone amuck.  See http://www.storyofstuff.com  and watch the free documentary about how we are manipulated to purchase useless items to “belong” and how the process negatively affects our health and our world.  Back to Ireland – and most European countries-family, education, and health are more important than work or money.  We say that here, but I’m not sure we actually live it.  Just something to ponder….
