I LIKE EOLAI'S idea of cycling through all 32 counties on a painting tour of Ireland. More than that, I like the idea of having him spending enough time in Cashel to sketch a rough drawing of Hore Abbey, the historical ruin across the street from our home. We have a young artist in the house (working at right) who would like to colour inside the lines of the artwork. She prides herself in her emergent artwork. But there's something else I'd like to watch evolve during Eolai's two-month trip around the island. I'd like to sponsor his Trip Journal. Hopefully, he'd make an entry each day as well as an entry for each county that he visited. I'd like to use the notebook in my Media Writing module during the upcoming semester because I consider journaling to be a core skill of every creative.
