Guess who’s coming to dinner?!!!Heather, I thought that maybe now was the perfect time to introduce you to all my gang. Each and very one of them has being listening to the tales and lore of Lemuria, and at this time feel as if they are as much part of the community as I am!! So it seems fitting to bring them along to visit you today on this very meaning ful day in your life. Allow me to introduce them to you, starting from top left and working clockwise:Sorcha (16 years old and my eldest); myself; Orla (5 years old and the youngest); Donnie (my husband); Grainne (12 years old and the middle child); Meabh (8 years old, second youngest); and Eoin (14 years old and my only son).What are we listening to? — It had to be one of the great love stories, like yours and Darryl’s, so we chose Puccini’s ‘La Boheme’.

What are we reading?- Ah since starting to write my Riversleigh Chronicles (which have yet to be posted) it seemed only fitting that the family bedtime story should be one in similar spirit and mood as the prevailing winds in Lemuria, the one, the only, ‘The Secret Garden’, of course!

So here we all are, the younger children are running around your front lawn playing chasing and having fun, while trying not to spill any of the adult’s drinks; Sorcha is standing beside you and alternately telling you about her life in Ireland and listening avidly to your stories, Eoin is checking out all Darryl’s friends, hoping to get a ride on one of the bikes; Donnie is distracting your mother-in-law attempting to keep her occupied and out of your hair (lovely job, by the way!); and me, well I am here in the background for whenever you need a shoulder to cry on, and otherwise having a few quiet words with dear Monika and Lois.

Yes Heather, today we are all standing right there beside you.

With all our love and more,

Edith, Donnie, Sorcha, Eoin, Grainne, Meabh, and Orla.


Lady Sybil Riversleigh, Commander of the Soul Food constellation, has requested that members of her fleet participate in a special celebration.

Fleet members are travelling from all over the Empire to be with her on this special day. We travelled in the starship, the ‘burning candle’ together with representative members of the Sisterhood of Ravens who are more usually to be found splashing around in the fountains in Bruges.

Musical accompaniement is provided by the fabulous Barb Jungr singing songs from her first CD “Bare”.

We bring carrot cake for comfort and nourishment together with water from Jacob’s well to share in the sorrow and joy that this day may bring and wish Darryl “bon voyage”!

with love from Traveller and Paul

What is lost,

Oft returns.


in life renewed
What good fortune,

Mankind can,

Hold memories,

All who once lived,

began a legacy,

now ripples through eternity.
