Hundreds of thousands of people have lined the streets of Dublin where a parade has marked the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

My friend, artist Tom Keough, has just published a graphic novella version of James Connolly's life. It's the 100th anniversary of Connolly's execution for partaking in and organizing the Easter Rebellion. You can read about it here:

It was a great day out. Thankfully the weather kept dry until the end of the main parade. Very proud to be Irish and extremely proud of the brave Men and Women whose actions 100 years ago became the catalyst for the Republic we have today.
BTW - Connolly's demeanor in the days leading up to his execution are very poignant and speak volumes for the man he was. Same can be said for all the brave Men who had to face the Brit's firing squad.

We know their dream; enough
To know they dreamed and are dead;
And what if excess of love
Bewildered them till they died?
I write it out in a verse—
MacDonagh and MacBride
And Connolly and Pearse
Now and in time to be,
Wherever green is worn,
Are changed, changed utterly:
A terrible beauty is born.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats
