Tapping on the window of the invisible median strip between her inner and outer worlds, Aoibheann Ó hAodha, the poet and mystic known among the Irish townspeople simply as Aoibheann of Elphin (1916-1982), exuberantly wrote about the trials and tribulations, as well as ecstasies and sublimations, of her stretched out consciousness via the ‘crucis’ of life itself.
