Many of you will already know this, but there are several people who follow my blog alone and don’t see my updates on Facebook… and anyway it’s not every day that people just up and move to another country… I mean, actually probably it is, but… never mind. The point is, perhaps it could be useful to someone. Either way, I received several requests to write here about the move and related experiences, so here we are.
I am here to pursue a Master of Arts in Music Therapy. I chose this program for several reasons, among them financial considerations, the time required to become qualified (which is significantly less than it would have been in the states), my love for Ireland as a place and people, my love for adventure, and, primarily, my conviction that I was being called here by God.
Why Music Therapy?
That is a complex question that I will have to go into in another post. Suffice it to say that God made it pretty clear this is what he wanted me to do, and it seemed to fit well with my talents, past experience, and professional hopes.
I arrived in Ireland at the beginning of September. Thus, I have already been here for several weeks, but have a good deal of writing already on the transition that I can share.
How often will you post?
To be completely honest, I have no idea. Hopefully once every couple weeks at least. Perhaps if I can keep posts to a more manageable length, they will be more frequent.
As with all the other stories and experiences I’ve shared here, I”m looking forward to continuing with this one. Thank you for your interest in my journey and my writing. I love it, but given my multitude of interests, writing tends to be one of those things that sadly falls by the wayside sometimes, so it is great to have your support as an encouragement to keep at it.
Cheers for now.
