Blessings on you El Capitan - and your family

There is an old Irish blessing, that I have long ago committed to memory. It is appropriate for many occasions the least of which is condolences to friends who have lost loved ones to the freeing hand of death. This one is for my friend El Capitan, whose grandmother passed away yesterday.

Fair winds and following seas, my friend.

May the road rise to meet you

May the wind be always at your back

May the sun shine warm upon your face

The rain fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again

May God hold you in the palm of his hand
