To Galway and back, all in one day. Thank you to everyone who came along to The Crane Bar this afternoon for the launch of Keeping Bees. To James Harrold - a massive thank you for such a brilliant introduction and for making bees and tomatoes sound as sexy as they ought to be. Thank you also to Kevin O'Shea for taking such lovely photos. And, as always, to Doire Press for giving poems about bees and horses and peaches and Jesus (body and all) a good home. Extra thanks to Lisa for cooking up a storm - food and poetry go hand in hand, and there was much to feast on. Was a pleasure to spend the day in Galway - lovely to see so many faces - both familiar and new. Thank you!!!
