  1. Hi Aishling: I met you and your daughter on a plane coming from Tenerife. You were so open and friendly that I wondered, and I still wonder, if you were/ are from some place where there are no boundaries and walls to human social communication. I love your paintings and also your projects for children which you told me all about. You are a free moving spirit and I will not forget our brief spell talking together. (like I said on planes I usually end up sitting alone in a bubble)
