...Lambs . .I
decide against the direct route, to Cork 50 miles in traffic. Instead,
I'll touch the scenic Ring of Kerry on back roads, a more rigorous trip
of 80 hilly miles. Coasting downhill, I whoop at the top of my lungs. I'm
strong enough now to enjoy this ride and the workout. Sister Carmen, whom
I met in a San Francisco workshop, has invited me to visit her convent for
three days. I feel like a bull about to enter a china shop.
