Night Log 2015-06-25

SA: Brent
SO: Veronica
Others: Paul, Keith, Etienne and Johan at start of night


We lost our dear colleague and friend Darragh O'Donoghue this evening. Words are difficult at this very sad time, save perhaps, if I may, some Irish blessings:

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

Now sweetly lies old Ireland
Emerald green beyond the foam,
Awakening sweet memories,
Calling the heart back home.

Ireland, it's the one place on earth
That heaven has kissed
With melody, mirth,
And meadow and mist.

Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.


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

No observations on this cold night with high humidity and heavy clouds.
