Hungry for You

I heard yesterday of the sudden and tragic death of a young friend of mine. In 2003 she played flute on one of my songs, which I attach here as a tribute to Claire’s memory.

  1. Jon,

    Thanks for that. A lovely song echoing the desires of my heart.

    It is particularly sad when a young person dies.
    Recently we buried my 29 year old niece. She died from a genetically mediated gastric carcinoma, as did my sister two years ago.
    Yesterday I got the results of my own genetic tests. I’m clear. With a 1:2 chance of passing it on if I had it, and with an 80% lifetime risk of contracting the disease if you have the gene, I’m glad that my three youngsters don’t have to worry about it.

    Thanks Peter. She related closely to the song too, which is, I gather, a comfort for her family.

    And I’m glad you’re genetically in the clear, too.
