PATRICKLAWRENCE.US serves several purposes. It is an archive of the columns, commentary, and essays published under the bylines “Patrick L. Smith” or simply “Patrick Smith.” This work is now available in one place for the first time. The site also introduces my books and provides readers or those with professional queries several ways to connect. This is also home to an occasional journal, Cú Chulainn.
“These are my footsteps.”
Ah! now he is running down to the sea…
holding up his sword…
O! he is fighting the waves.
