"Twere" is a nickname for Clare. More precisely, "Twere Bun," for Clare Byrne. Anyone know the origin of this? Anyway, here are some great photos of her that Julie sent.
Here is Clare with some of her company members (or shall I now say order? - dis-order?), with Patrick in the woods at Yulan, present at the burial of our grandfather and patriarch, celebrating a birthday in Yulan (present-ribbons around her neck), Stefan with his boy kitty Diego, Stefan's family celebrating Thanksgiving, and doing the Christmas Eve oyster thing.
