Happy St David's Day


Today is St David's Day. So... Dydd Gwyl Dewi hapus!

St David (seen here in a stained glass window from Jesus College, Oxford) is the Patron Saint of Wales. In the 6th century he helped spread Christianity among pagan Celtic tribes of western Britain and he only ate watercress and once stood in the middle of a lake up to his neck--but I don't remember why.

He is famous for saying, "Gwnewch y pethau bychain" ("do the little things") but then proceeded to be canonized and do great big things.

But then again, even the greatest of all journeys is made up of small steps.

So, in honor of St David and his Day, why not do the little things today... take the next step... do the next thing.

Hooray for St David!
Hooray for St David's Day!
And Hooray for little things!

(oh and happy birthday Dad!)
