I named this blog after the wonder voyage of Saint Brendan of Ireland, a monk who set forth on a sea pilgrimage in a curragh, a hide canoe, in 565 AD. The account of his fantastic sea adventures is a little like an Irish Thousand and One Nights. I'm not undertaking a sea voyage; I'm heading to India, to a small community outside of Bangalore. And as I'm traveling in India, I'll be researching and writing a novel. The wonder of those adventures will be recorded here.
