Gwen’s Wee Bairn

York, Penna., USA

Tomorrow I’m leaving my cousin Gwen’s in Pennsylvania. By the time I’m back in America, she’ll be in a new house in Massachusetts, and I’ll officially have no family in Pennsylvania anymore. It’s a strange thing to contemplate. I grew up there, even if I never felt like I belonged there. I still have friends there: Philip, Phredd and Nicole B. for a start. I have a million memories there. But I no longer have family there.

Meanwhile, though, I am looking forward to visiting my first-cousin-once-removed Seamus again soon. Isn’t he adorable?
