Looscaunagh Lough is a little lake on the edge of Killarney National Park in Ireland. I drove by it at least a dozen times during my stay in County Kerry. For me, it was heaven on earth. There were several abandoned cottages and I thought how simple and grand life would be if I could love in a little cottage besides Looscaunagh. I imagine it's just a boring plot of land beside a wee lake to most Irishmen, but I thought it was as close to perfect as one could hope to find. It was just one of two places that I have been in this world where I felt I belonged.
