The space, the dimensions, the heartbeat, the pulse
as journey continued through rooms of the houses
Their cracks, crevices, nooks and surrounding walls
allowed for a few pathways to happily join.

Elizabeth Fort: history, past, the old and unexpected
and now by magical and thoughtful crew is protected.
People so incredibly helpful in every imaginable way
Turning impossible to possible every single day.

Gillian, Peter, Stephan, Sean –

My wholehearted gratitude to your greatness
for constantly painting each day with brightness.

Many people, the houses and surrounding walls
Took a deep breath with Maria Minguella‘s calls
As waives of sounds travelled reaching the sky
just as blown bubbles reaching high, high, high.

My wholehearted gratitude.

Helena Palmer put her spark and illumination
Responding and sharing her interpretation
Offering movement as gentle as a dancing flame
After her presence nothing looked the same.

My wholehearted gratitude.

Cuan Muyllaert enchanted not only one soul
as sounds and words made everything glow
he connected with the earth as his heart sung
and all that is alive felt the pure air in a lung

My wholehearted gratitude.

Congratulations to Gloria Nioretini Photography who took the opportunity
to display her photographs demonstrating Irish serenity
for taking the step to share her work with the world
and to illustrate that by Mother Nature we are held.

My wholehearted gratitude.

Procession Journey Performance was full of walking, fire and bubbles
Through poems, story and visualisation we left behind all the troubles
And Ljubica Obradovic ………. And Stephen Hogan …… and James Franciszek Kelly were astounding
Sprouting the vision and expanding the mission affirming the founding.

My wholehearted gratitude.

This journey is for each and every one of you and only with you continues
through your engagement and contribution displays various hues
To educate each other, learn from one another, reflect and inspire
To bring growth, fulfilment of potential, to become like air, water, fire.

My wholehearted gratitude.
