In this episode, I talk about how I found God in these thin places of Ireland.

Titmice seem overexcited about simply being alive. I know it sounds a bit odd, but perhaps there are a few things they can teach about living. In this episode, I explore a few lessons, including how I've never seen a sad titmouse.
