After a six-week stay here in Ireland, my daughter Katy set off from Cork this morning to return to her work in Canada. She is probably already in Canadian airspace, as I write.

I'm jealous of the pillow that cradled your head last night
And the sheets that held your sleeping body.
My greedy brain replays your gentle chides
And the husky notes of your late night-early morning laughter.
It settles me, and with closed eyes.....I weep....I smile. 

See you soon in Van Skate.......


Ciao for now!
