My loving granddaughter, Natasha, enrolled me into this interesting experience, as a birthday present in May this year. It has been so interesting to compare it with her, her Father’s results and her others granny’s. The biggest surprise for me has been the lack of English dna. And the Finnish and Greek and Scandinavian inclusions ! NO SURPRISE THAT I AM A CELT. My paintings, poetry and spirituality testify to that, and the fact that I have been drawn to live on the Celtic Isle of Iona in the last chapter of my life.
I did NOT know, when I was attracted to, and married, a handsome Norwegian at the tender age of 19, that we shared the same DNA ! Perhaps my love of Orthodox spirituality- my library has two shelves – and my years of learning to write Ikons is rooted in my Greek DNA ? But the Finnish ??? remains a mystery.
All I can say is THANKYOU darling Tash for such a delightful gift, and cherish the hope that other members of my family will want to connect to our shared ethnicity.

Deacon Philip, soon to be ordained, stayed four happy days on Iona and brought lots of joy and fun. Even cooked me an Asian supper one night ! looking forward to his return with group of young pilgrims for Feast of St Columba in June.
Dance while you can joyful jumpers
Let Nordic winds sing their chilling saga’s
Through your ever open arms
Colours brighten in winterly sun
As you gavotte above the tree
Soon human arms will confiscate your joy
And rob you of your fast flamenco twirls
On Iona’ holy Isle.
