The sole cause of man’s unhappiness is that he does not know how to stay quietly in his room.”
Pascal, Pensees, 136

I think I must have been transplanted by the winds to this land of mud; surely I was born elsewhere...”
Gustave Flaubert, p 97, The Art of Travel

The accumulated sorrows of your exile will dissipate.
I, your God, will get rid of them for you.
You've carried those burdens long enough.
At the same time, I'll get rid of all those who've made your life miserable.
I'll heal the maimed;
I'll bring home the homeless.
In the very countries where they were hated they will be venerated.
On Judgment Day
I'll bring you back home—a great family gathering!
You'll be famous and honored all over the world.
You'll see it with your own eyes all those painful partings turned into reunions!"
God's Promise.”
God through the prophet Zephaniah 3:19-20, MSG

That's a post office. There is a number of heroine addicts in Dublin, it could have been one of them. It could have been anyone, even a tourist, or a refugee. Who knows?
