Other worlds, other voices - ach dhá dhomhain difriúil?


I wanted to write something about the feel of the languages, the world that Irish evokes. How the feeling... feels. And compare it to English. Because of I have learned anything (and sometimes it feels like I haven't) at all it's that the words describe two different worlds....

.... and the feelings I have cannot be described in the Irish I have. Yes, the words can be found but it's the life behind them, the idioms, the feeling that I cannot understand, never mind convey.

I am beginning to wonder at what I have written. But it's too late, I'm bringing it in tomorrow. I don't know.
