    I wanted to share this post from my friend Cristína Ní Dubhsláine who lost her beautiful 18 year old son Fionn a year ago in a sporting accident. This is her memory from a year ago. I believe it’s a song:

    Bí ann, bí liom – Be there, be with me

    Bí gasta, bí cróga- Be quick, be brave

    Bí cliste, bí cinnte- Be clever, be sure

    Bí casta, bí glic – Be tricky, be sharp

    Bí grámhar, gealgáireach- Be loving, light-hearted

    Bí socair laistigh – Be steady inside

    Bí doimhin ach bí éadrom – And be deep but be light

    Gan teannas ar bith – With no tension inside

    I do chorp, i do chroí – In your body, in your heart

    I do cheann, ins a tslí – In your head,

    Ina chuireann tú tú fhéin i láthair – In the way which you present yourself

    I pé chomhluadar ina bhfuil tú – In whatever company you happen to be

    Bí ann liom – Be there for me

    Bí láidir il-dána – Be strong and be able

    Nuair a chasann an domhan – When the world takes a turn

    Bí ann dom – Be there with me

    Agus buailfimid le chéile – And we will meet together

    Nuair a thagann an t-am – When the right time comes.




    I met Cristina in person at the Rather Gather Festival in the Spring, it was lovely to meet her, a beautiful, strong woman – I gave her a special Selenite cone and hope she liked it.
