To everyone who came to the North Fork library on May 21st for my talk on Ireland, my deepest apologies for not showing up. I wish I had a good excuse…..like being lost in the woods or abducted by aliens, but I don’t. The sad truth is that due to a mixed up work schedule last week, I woke up on Saturday completely convinced that it was Friday! The recent loss of my beloved dog and a call out of the blue from a long lost friend further distracted me from realizing my mistake.
Needless to say, I am beyond distraught for having worried and inconvenienced so many people, not to mention concerned about my blatant mental lapse. If I had any way of knowing exactly who was there, I would apologize individually, but this will have to suffice. I sincerely hope that it’s possible to reschedule this and that whoever was there last night will come back. I promise to be there!!
