St. Brendan's Well and The Black Garden
by Shawn A Lohan

'There are events in your life that one feels are so important, that if you were here only for those moments, it would be enough; that your participation in, or even your creation of those events, in your heart, has made a difference for those you love, and support and even better, for total strangers, that you made their world a better place … then, yes, it is all worth it.' What brought him to this point? This story both factual, and fictional, attempts to convey a journey steered by random chance, love, and loss. It is a remembrance to the many important people who played crucial parts in the lives of the author and his father. It is an epiphany in spirituality, in the hardships of experience and the decisions made to move forward, and in the spirit that burns within the hearts of those who wish to make life a better experience for those who follow. Finally, to remember, and acknowledge, those forgotten and lost in time and hidden forever.
