She is a Dublin woman now.
She has always been an Irish girl/woman. Her junior year (Providence College) was spent at University College Dublin, she worked in a pub in the City and now is helping set up the European headquarters for a company called Hubspot www.hubspot.com.
She has taught school in Korea, sold door-to-door in Australia, lived and worked in Majorca, Spain. She holds a Masters degree from Harvard University. She has seen and done things that most people will never experience in a much longer life time.
She left the beach house she was staying at in Phuket the day before the tsunami hit. Luck and someone was looking after her that day.
She brings a certain spirit and joy to the “beach” and to life…
She keeps me young at heart…she encourages me to do more and to live life with passion.
The beach will not be the same without her and I welcome her friends to visit and perhaps more stories of her exploits will surface.
She will be pissed that I posted this (probably because of the pictures I picked) and she will let me know in no uncertain terms.
The next time I see her will be at a wedding late this summer.
She is a Dublin woman now and I will miss her more than ever.
My dear Colleen, may a gentle Irish wind be always at your back … and the rain … deliver rainbows that direct and guide you in life and love.
