Some of the pieces are bagatelles. Some are free-form, and some even rhyme. Others combine Celtic mysteries from Wales, Ireland, Scotland, Isle of Man, China, the USA, Turkey, Switzerland, Galicia, Asturias, Brittany and elsewhere with contemporary frivolity. In contrast, others talk about magical and mundane events in everyday life.

Meet me in Córdoba (Extract)

Córdoba, Andalucía – 2011

I walk, and I dream

And I plan, and I scheme

And I stop and I start out

As new as the day begins

Hoping to change life

Like old socks

And new shirts

With nothing to stand in my way

And I learn, and I feel

And I fall, and I heal

With the questions and answers

And all that is in between

Spinning and wheeling

And centuries dealing

I am lost, and I’m found

In the enigmas of time

Meet me in Córdoba

I’ll be waiting for you

Meet me in Córdoba tonight

Meet me in Córdoba
