Excerpt from Just Stories

As you step from the gangway at New York your ears are greeted by Step lively, please! Step lively! It is the keynote of the new life on which you are entering, and as you go down the busy streets, pass through the crowded stores, you can feel the same spirit. Each lined and anxious face seems to about at you, Step lively, please! Step lively! Until you, too, become absorbed in the rush, and consciously or unconsciously join the universal chorus. I, also have come under the spell, but ofien in the whirling day, when mind and heart are sick with the unceasing stress of life, my thoughts go back to the long, restful days beside Galway Bay; to the still evenings in the Cork bills; to the pleasant, friendly greeting from the passing stranger, to the golden sunsets, when we almost seemed to be looking straight in at the gates of heaven, and the memory gave me rest and joy. These little stories are the fruit of these moments of retrospection, written down in the hope that they may bring the pleasant memory of home to those who like myself have wandered, struck perhaps with the fairy wisp of the pooka, and give some little glimpse of Ireland to those who have not had the joy of looking on her face.
