Greetings to all folks near and far.
My latest article is an excerpt from The Celtic Twilight by William B. Yeats. Yeats, along with the beliefs and stories of my father, Edwin W. Doyle, became two of my best inspirations when I decided to write about folklore and mythology. Since both these men came from Irish heritage, the stories of Ireland are among my favorites.

Did you know that the Hoary Marmot is referred to as “The Whistle Pig”? It warns other marmots in the colony of danger by whistling a very high pitched shrill. Sometimes, the Hoary Marmot is known as “The Whistler”. These little critters can be found in Alaska, all through northwestern Canada and into the northern United States, including Montana and Idaho.
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
- Mark Twain
