The connection with Dr. Isabel has been rich through music, ceramics and painting, cats and proper English teas with conversations in two languages about a wide variety of subjects. Through her I have met some fascinating people, acquired a cat (Pasqual), lost that dear cat, acquired another cat (Sombra) as well as the companion cat. Ultimo, and had wonderful emotional support while dealing with some nearly catastrophic news. It won't be quite the same with her being so far away. I shall miss very much those get-togethers and for now will have to intend her journey is safe, fulfilling, and brings her all that she is seeking through her travels.
