Wish I could be in Dublin and listen to Gabriel next year.
But it is not possible for me to travel there now.
Lucky people in Dublin!

Yes, Nora, those lucky Dubliners! I think this is his gift to them. And that is lovely. I wish we could all be there to cheer him on. <3
Phenomenal news. ❤ Sigh!
I hope their national broadcaster RTÉ records Gabriel for all to enjoy. Such a stunning book.
I tweeted at the Irish Arts Center to do it here in NYC at their shiny new venue and then stream it to everyone in the world!
Haven’t heard back from them yet. ;-)
oh Stella, that would be sooooo cool… live streaming it … dreaming of it now….
just wishing upon that lucky shamrock..
‘Tis the season for Big Wishes, Kathleen! <3
