County Kildare, Ireland. May, 1992

After my mother died, I took my father to Ireland, a place he'd always wanted to visit. One of our stops: here at Curragh Camp, where his mother was from. It's a military base and the guards, very official, stopped us at the gate. But when we told them that it had been the home of my father's mother, they waved us in and gave us free rein. Mothers. Ireland.
