Flag of Chile  ,
Friday, December 24, 2004

We are spending a quiet and rather reflective week in Viņa del Mar - a beautiful resort city on the central Chilean coast - enjoying the gardens, beaches and sunny weather. No snow for us to shovel down here! Christmas without Mike is going to be very difficult, but we will be focussing on all our wonderful memories of the past twenty four years.

We would like to wish everyone who is travelling vicariously with us on TravelPod A Very Blessed Christmas and a Peaceful New Year. We hope 2005 brings you the opportunity to "follow your dreams"!

We leave you now with this Gaelic blessing from the Ancient Kings of Ireland:

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Many thanks to our friends Keith & Susan in Rotorua, New Zealand, for suggesting this. For us it conjures up especially poignant memories of the "Bouquet Garni" madrigal group serenading us at the end of Herbfest every year (thanks Linda, Bryn, Judy and Bill!).
