Amhráin Ghrá

May the lilt of Irish laughter lighten every load.

Irish Blessing

If Google translate is working today, Amhráin Ghrá means Songs of Love. We need more of those today. If it’s not, if there’s an error in what my title says—and I’ve just said something insulting—please forgive my ignorance. 😉 Just trying to spread some Irish love today.

Anyway, I couldn’t resist adding this to my Going Green series. Nothing says GREEN more than St. Paddy’s Day!

I’ve never mentioned this before, but my laptop is falling apart. I can’t close the lid because something broke and the monitor screen is barely attached—it’s hanging by a thread. The battery no longer charges as well, so if I’m working and the cord somehow disconnects, the PC shuts off instantly and I lose what I’m working on.

Needless to say, I don’t use my laptop to take quizzes or exams for school. If it disconnects during those, it’s pretty much an automatic fail. Fortunately, my sister gave me a hand me down. Older sisters are cool like that! It will work for now, until I’m ready to invest in something new and improved.

Anyway, I bring this up because the borrowed PC is still on Windows 7 and I can’t load my Photoshop on it. Bummer! That being said, another blogger mentioned the free program GIMP. I’ve been trying it out, and this morning I used the Kaleidoscope effect to make the image I’ve featured here. I think it’s pretty fun!

I thought I’d add a gallery here to show the original, the kaleidoscope version, and a square version (that I call lights) that I made in Photoshop last night. It’s a fun and unusual display of Green. I’m not sure if the reader will distort this, but I will give it a shot…

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you found something enjoyable here…

Sláinte! (Cheers!)
