On this Feast of St Raphael the Healer, I share my reply to an email that came from my old Buddhist community (sangha) after several years of silence:
I had to go to Galway today. Galway is one of my favourite cities (not that I’m familiar with that many, mind you). Today I stumbled upon a little gem tucked away on an industrial estate (Liosban Business Park to be precise). It can be hard to find supplies in the West of Ireland so I was delighted to find such a well-stocked shop with reasonably-priced yarn. People tell me to shop online but I like to get my hands on stuff before I buy it; I guess I’m old-fashioned. I’ve just checked out their website and it looks like you can order on-line too (for those of you who like that sort of thing). 🙂
I bought the sparkly white yarn because I thought it would be perfect for more Christmas snowflakes.
