Orla, Thank you for this interesting article! It seems to be full of reflections about your quandary:

I decide to come to Portugal to wait a while and then go to Ireland, but the months are now dragging on and I’m still here.

Going south into the sunshine sounds good! I hope to read more of your fine poetry soon. Best wishes always, Amy
